I love folklore tales and stories. They are cherished throughout generations and every generation adds its own sentiment and emotion to each story.
This amazing Tale of the Princess Kaguya would enchant you with its animation techniques and, most of all, its storyline.
One little girl was found by an old bamboo cutter and his wife inside a young stalk of bamboo. You would imagine how this young girl grows into a powerful young lady who attracts attention not only of the positive forces, but also of those with an evil eye. Without divulging all details of the movie, you’d be fascinated to find out what she does to meet her fate and ill-wishers.
And if you watched the Oscars 2015, then you heard the nomination of The Tale of The Princess Kaguya for the Best Animated Feature! I was excited to hear that! This animation is certainly worthy of the high rewards.
Hand-drawn and featuring voices of some of the best in the industry Chloë Grace Moretz, James Caan, Lucy Liu, this animated folktale would become one of the best known and loved.
