The Tale of the Princess Kaguya (Studio Ghibli)

This was Isao Takahata’s very final masterpiece, before his retirement after Hayao Miyazaki. Nominated for an Acadamy Award for Best Animated Feature, this is based on a Japanese folk tale.

In fact, this has a great US cast. Chloë Grace Moretz, James Caan, Mary Steenburgen, Darren Criss, Lucy Liu, Oliver Platt, George Segal, James Marsden, John Cho, and Beau Bridges.

An old bamboo cutter, found a tiny child in a bamboo tree. Raising her together as newborn child, they loved her more than anything in the world. They named her, Kaguya. And by watching her grow up fast, she was learning to adapt well. Very emotional and thoughtful, this masterpiece was splendid.

Kaguya never married anyone, as she had to make a destiny in the end. When the time came, she will always love her mother and father who raised her on Earth.

10/10 stars on this emotional masterpiece that I agree to on. I know it sure was too bad, this never won that Oscar award for Best Animated Feature in the 87th Academy Awards. But Isao Takahata deserves an Oscar award for his Studio Ghibli masterpieces that he did.
