Walt Disney Studios has provided us with additional stills from Tales from Earthsea from Studio Ghibli which we have added to our existing gallery, placing the new stills at the beginning in no particular order.

In her six-book series, author Ursula Le Guin created the magical land of Earthsea—a world of islands and water where wizardry is a science that allows one to control the elements, heal illness, calm earthquakes, make the wind blow in the sails of boats, and much more. In this world, Sparrowhawk, whose secret name is Ged, was chosen when he was a young and proud shepherd to learn magic. The books follow him on his heroic journey of self-discovery and redemption through the Darkness and back again.

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.
