Live Action Kiki’s Looks Terrible

Maybe it’s just me but this Japanese movie trailer just looks awful. According to news outlets this movie has the blessing of Miyazaki-san but the original animated movie has such a special place in my heart that its hard to stomach this as something serious. I would love to see a faithful live action adaptation of his movies but they have to be done right. It could just be my American sensibilities when it comes to this kind of movie and the source material. Maybe to the Japanese this looks super appealing. Maybe.
