Yesterday, film distributor Wild Bunch Distribution released a short clip of The Red Turtle to its YouTube channel. The 71-second teaser offers a glimpse at the film’s early moments.
The Red Turtle is the first theatrical feature from Studio Ghibli since 2013’s The Wind Rises. The studio is co-producing the feature with French company Wild Bunch. Michael Dudok de Wit (The Monk and the Fish) directed the feature, while Isao Takahata (Grave of the Fireflies, The Tale of Princess Kaguya) served as artistic director. The script was written by French director and screenwriter Pascale Ferran (Lady Chatterly, Bird People).
The feature debuts at France’s Cannes Film Festival tomorrow, which will be followed by a wider French release on June 29. Toho will distribute the film in Japan on September 17.
