"Director Goro Miyazaki (son of Hayao) is a chip off the old block and a talent to watch." – Helen O’hara, Empire Magazine
The directorial debut of Hayao Miyazaki’s son, Goro Miyazaki, Tales from Earthsea is based on the four novels in legendary sci-fi and fantasy writer Ursula K. LeGuin’s (whose passing earlier this year marked the end of a prolific career) Earthsea cycle. As crops dwindle and dragons reappear, mankind stands on the verge of total chaos. Lord Archmage Sparrowhawk, a powerful wizard, and Arren, a troubled young prince, search for the force behind this mysterious imbalance that threatens to destroy the land of Earthsea, in a tale of redemption and self-discovery that will take your breath away.
