First picture from set of live-action Kiki’s Delivery Service released

First written as a children’s novel by Eiko Kadano in 1985, Kiki’s Delivery Service is the story of a 13-year-old witch who, following the traditions taught to her by her similarly magical mother, sets out to live by herself for a year to mature and learn about the world. The story achieved international fame with its 1989 theatrical anime adaptation, directed by industry legend Hayao Miyazaki and crafted by his team at Studio Ghibli.

Filming has begun on a live-action version of the story, and producers recently released the first still image from the set.

Over 500 would-be witches auditioned for the title role, which was eventually won by relative newcomer Fuuka Koshiba. Koshiba made her professional acting debut in last year’s TV drama Iki mo Dekinai Natsu/Breathless Summer, playing the younger sister of the show’s protagonist, and has was also a guest on the period drama Oka Echizen this past spring. The upcoming Kiki film marks her first appearance in a theatrical feature, and is also the first live-action adaptation of a Studio Ghibli animated work.



The project is being helmed by director Takashi Shimizu, best-known for the Juon horror series. Takashi has stated he wants to give his version of the teenage witch a bit of a wild side. Appropriately, the released photo shows 16-year-old Osaka-native Koshiba striking a pose with hand on hip and a smirk on her lips.



Kadono herself recently met with the actress, and commented that she was impressed by Koshiba’s enthusiasm for the role. The author also said she was looking forward to Koshiba, a former competitive figure skater, showing off her athleticism during the film’s flying scenes.

Sharp-eyed, or obsessive, anime fans may note a few differences between the live-action and animated versions of Kiki. First, Koshiba is without the large red ribbon that has always adorned Kiki’s head until now. In addition, Koshiba’s hair is much longer than that of the animated Kiki, although this is in keeping with the novel’s original illustrations, as well as early but eventually rejected design sketches by Studio Ghibli.

There’s no sign yet of Kiki’s faithful companion Jiji the black cat (who as we recently reported may or not be an alien), but we figure his vanishing act is only temporary and trust he’ll show up in time for the film’s expected 2014 premiere. In the meantime, the production’s first magic trick, turning Kiki into a real girl, seems to be a success.

Kiki’s Delivery Service Live Action Film Has Been Shot In Azuki Island



This is a follow-up for the live-action film of “Kiki’s Delivery Service” that going to be released in 2014.

Shooting has started in May at a studio in Tokyo, then, the shooting place has been moved to Shodo Island located in the Inland Sea of Japan.



The shooting has been shot with a large scale setting focusing a wind mill shaped structure with the bakery where Osono and Kiki (Fuuka Koshiba) work beside on a low rise mountain overlooking the sea and the islands.



This live-action version is based on “Kiki’s Delivery Service,” a children’s fantasy novel written by Eiko Kadono, as same as the anime by Hayao Miyazaki.
However, the difference is that the animation depicted based only on the first volume, on the other hand, the live-action version will be based on the first and second volumes.



The director Takashi Shimizu, who’s famous with “Ju-on” series, said his strong determination in a quiet tone,
“Since the Ghibli’s anime became famous all over the world and the image has solidified, it turns out that the live action is a reckless attempt. But, that’s why I want to take on a challenge.”

Mmm, it’s going to be excited!

I’d like to share several pics from its shooting.
Let’s hope they will work well.
