The teaser trailer doesn't give much away, but we thought it was worth mentioning because the animated version is such a popular movie around the world. For those that aren't familiar with it, Kiki's Delivery Service is a live action take on Studio Ghibli's 1989 animated feature, directed by Japan's very own Uncle Walt, Hayao Miyazaki. A young girl named Kiki (Fuka Koshiba) must leave her home for a year to begin training in witchcraft. She leaves on her broom, but first says goodbye to her friends and family. Kiki then begins her new life with her trusted cat Jiji.
The new film is based on the children's fantasy novel "Kiki's Delivery Service" by Eiko Kadono, first published in 1985 by Fukuinkan Shoten. Filming began on May 25th and the new movie has a Japan release date pencilled in for March 1st, 2014. We'll keep you posted on further developments, but for now, sit back and enjoy the - quite frankly - pointless trailer. Guess that's why they call it a teaser...
