Adapted from Ursula K. Le Guin's beloved children's fantasy book series, this animated film from Studio Ghibli marks the directorial debut of Goro Miyazaki , the son of the legendary Hayao Miyazaki ('Spirited Away', 'Howl's Moving Castle') . A strange force is disturbing the natural harmony in the land of Earthsea. Dragons are fighting, magic is dying out, and humanity is falling into chaos and disorder. Haunted by inner demons, Prince Arren stabs his father and absconds with the king's sword. He meets master wizard Ged and a strange young girl named Therru and finds friendship and protection. A dark shadow, however, continues to haunt Arren, drawing him closer to the evil sorcerer Cob whose quest for eternal life is destroying the balance between the realm of the living and the dead. To save Earthsea, Arren must stop Cob, but Arren himself is desending into darkness.

N. Taliakis, Bedfordview. 2 September 2009

Tales from the “Earthsea is really the third book of Ursula Le Guin’s acclaimed Trilogy of the same name.

Directed by Goro Miyazaki (son of the incredible, fantastic, awesome…… Hayao Miyazaki) it has the typical Studio Ghibli look: Magnificent animation, superb colour everything that you expect - except for a somewhat disjointed and disappointing story-line despite having an excellent book to lift it from…

After buying and watching every-single Studio Ghibli film (with the exception of Only Yesterday and My neighbours the Yamadas) I was a little disappointed in this one. Possibly because Goro does not have the Directorial know-how to make a brilliant movie and instead made a good movie and therein lies the trouble in that anyone who knows Studio Ghibli expects more, much more.

From the nostalgic (but fast paced) period piece Porko Roso, to the all-out adventures of Laputa, Howl’s moving castle and Nausica’a of the valley of the wind… The delightful My Neighbour Totoro, the gut wrenching Grave of the fire-flies and the multiple award wining Spirited away:- Studio Ghibli is the intelligent man’s (and woman’s) animation studio – Something that Disney (and even Pixar) could never hope to emulate, so Tales from the Earthsea is not a bad movie – it’s a good movie, it’s just not good enough for Studio Ghibli.

Having said that – you should still buy it. If you have not bought a studio Ghibli before start of with the following: Spirited away, Howls moving castle, Princess Mononoke, Porko Rosso, Laputa (island in the sky) and Kiki’s delivery service – then buy the rest including this one.

PS: don’t buy Studio Ghibli movies because you think your kids will like them – You’ll LOVE them at any age… I have watched them all at least twice
