A Castaway's Adventure Takes an Unexpectedly Happy Turn in Studio Ghibli's The Red Turtle

Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

The latest from Studio Ghibli, still reconfiguring itself since Hayao Miyazaki’s retirement, offers a very promising look toward the studio’s future. The Red Turtle, by animator Michaël Dudok de Wit, is Ghibli’s first co-production; it has no dialogue, but is filled with gorgeously simple, hand-drawn images.


The story is also simple, but like all Ghibli movies, it has a certain magic to it, too. The Red Turtle is set to make its debut at the currently underway Cannes Film Festival.
