Tales from Earthsea (ゲド戦記 Gedo Senki, lit. Ged's War Chronicles) is a Japanese animated fantasy film produced by Studio Ghibli, released in Japan on July 29, 2006. It was the directorial debut of Gorō Miyazaki, son of Hayao Miyazaki.

The film is based on a combination of plot and character elements from the first four books of Ursula K. Le Guin's Earthsea series, as well as the manga The Journey of Shuna by Hayao Miyazaki.

Synopsis

Something bizarre has come over the land. The kingdom is deteriorating. People are beginning to act strange... What's even more strange is that people are beginning to see dragons, which shouldn't enter the world of humans. Due to all these bizarre events, Ged, a wandering wizard, is investigating the cause. During his journey, he meets Prince Arren, a young distraught teenage boy. While Arren may look like a shy young teen, he has a severe dark side, which grants him strength, hatred, ruthlessness and has no mercy, especially when it comes to protecting Teru. For the witch Kumo this is a perfect opportunity. She can use the boy's "fears" against the very one who would help him, Ged.

Notes

  • The dub was released in the United Kingdom first, on August 3, 2007. The release of the dub in North America was delayed by 3 years due to licensing issues with the SciFi Channel's miniseries adaptation of Earthsea, which prevented it from being released. It finally saw a release in U.S. theaters on August 13, 2010.
