GKIDS has today announced the English voice cast for The Tale of the Princess Kaguya, the latest animated film from Studio Ghibli. The film, the first in fourteen years from Ghibli co-founder Isao Takahata, will be voiced domestically by ChloŽ Grace Moretz, James Caan, Mary Steenburgen, Darren Criss, Lucy Liu, Beau Bridges, James Marsden, Oliver Platt and Dean Cain.

Based on the classic Japanese folktale, "The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter," The Tale of the Princess Kaguya follows a tiny girl found inside a shining stalk of bamboo. She grows into an exquisite young lady, raised by an old bamboo cutter and his wife. From the countryside to the grand capital city, even unseen she enthralls all who encounter her, including five noble suitors. Ultimately she must face her fate, punishment for her crime.

GKIDS has North American distribution rights for the film and is planning a theatrical release starting October 17, with national expansion to follow. The film will qualify for the Academy Awards and other awards season contests.

The English-language version is being produced by Studio Ghibli and Geoffrey Wexler, with Frank Marshall of Kennedy/Marshall Executive Producing. This is the same team that handled English versions for the two previous Studio Ghibli films, The Wind Rises and From Up on Poppy Hill.
