New Poster and Stills Gallery from Goro Miyazaki’s ‘Tales from Earthsea’
Walt Disney Studios has just sent us this theatrical poster and several stills from their upcoming summer release Tales from Earthsea from Studio Ghibli, the partnership that most recently brought Ponyo to the United States.
Tales from Earthsea, directed by Goro Miyazaki, is loosely adapted from the third and fourth volumes in sci-fi author Ursula K. Le Guin’s infamous series of cult novels — all set in Earthsea, a Tolkien-esque fantasy realm. Gedo Senki opens at a point when Earthsea is deteriorating rapidly, and the power of magic is waning — tendencies signaled by the sudden, frightening reappearance of dragons in the land of humankind.
Tales from Earthsea is slated to open nationwide in limited release on August 13, 2010.
