A live-action Kiki's Delivery Service movie?!

For real?

Yup. Apparently it's happening and it should be out next year!

It'll be directed by Takashi Shimizu, known for horror film Ju-On: The Grudge (and its lesser sequels), and will star Fuka Koshiba as the titular witch. The film will be based on the novel and will essentially re-tell the story told in Studio Ghibli's classic animated feature.

There's a teaser trailer (see below) but it shows nothing so I shall keep y'all updated should anymore news about the production arise!

Any thoughts on why this movie's being made? Are you looking forward to it?

  1. I only have to ask one thing when I see this. Is this necessary? Is the world really hurting for a live action Kiki's Delivery Service? Then again, they make a million shitty X-Men and Resident Evil movies so why the fuck not just make whatever the hell you want.

    1. It is a weird project, definitely. Not sure who thought this was worth making but I'll guess we'll get to see if it was worth making next year :P
      I won't hold my breath, though!
