Studio Ghibli & Wild Bunch’s The Red Turtle gets a trailer



Here is a new trailer for Studio Ghibli’s The Red Turtle. It is a joint-production with European film distributor Wild Bunch. Michaël Dudok de Wit is directing, while Isao Takahata (Grave of the Fireflies) is the film’s Artistic Producer.

The Red Turtle tells the story of a man who tries to escape from a desert island and battles a giant turtle. The film has no dialogue.

According to Vincent Maraval, head of Wild Bunch, he visited Studio Ghibli in Japan in 2008 and met with Hayao Miyazaki. Miyazaki showed him the short film Father and Daughter and asked him to find its director, Michaël Dudok de Wit, with the prospect of co-producing a feature film. Wild Bunch approached Dudok de Wit in London and convinced him to take on the project. The screenplay was written by Dudok de Wit and Pascale Ferran.
