Tales from Earthsea (Gedo Senki)
- 1h 55min
- Directed by: Gorō Miyazaki
- Cast: Bunta Sugawara, Junichi Okada, Aoi Teshima, Yuko Tanaka
- Language: Japanese
Bizarre events start to blur the lines between fantasy and reality, and the wizard Ged is sent to discover the cause. A decent enough animation with a few inspired moments, but the benign worldview that made 'Spirited Away' such a revelation is sorely missing from the stark 'goodies and baddies' delineation offered here.
