From the creators of Spirited Away and Ponyo and available for the first time on Blu-ray in stunning high-definition comes Tales from Earthsea.
The directorial debut of Goro Miyazaki, son of the legendary Hayao Miyazaki (Spirited Away). Featuring the voices of Timothy Dalton, Willem Dafoe and Matt Levin, Tales From Earthsea is based on the unique series of books by Ursula Le Guin. This enchanting story takes place in a fantasy world of dragons and wizards. A ship is tossed by a raging sea and two dragons appear from the storm clouds, only to devour each other. This is seen to be a terrible omen that the very balance of the world is collapsing and sets Sparrowhawk (Timothy Dalton), a wizard, on his quest to find the source of the evil forces that are shaking the world.
"Visually stunning" An epic creation pitched against a backdrop of vividly hued, sweeping landscapes.

This is the first film directed by Goro Miyazaki, the son of Hayao Miyazaki. Although certainly not completely terrible, it is decidedly average, more than likely propped up by the other staff involved than Miyazaki Jnr. It lacks heart and it lacks purpose. It changes the plot of the novels upon which it is based for no apparent reason, and mashes them until they are barely recognisable. Certainly not a great start for Goro, although his next film From Up on Poppy Hill is a vast improvement, so certainly watch that when it is released instead. In the case of this film, possibly better to skip and just read the novels.
