Oblivion Island: Haruka and the Magic Mirror Trailer

Highlighted by one of our readers I thought I'd post this here. I hadn't heard of this until now, not sure if I'm just out of the loop or if it's relatively unknown.




From the studio that brought you Eden of the East, FLCL and Ghost in the Shell comes an exhilarating blend of Japanese folklore and storybook charm reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland. This award-winning feature film is sure to amaze animation fans of all ages. 16-year-old Haruka is on a mission to find her mirror—a precious childhood gift from her late mother that has disappeared. On her search, she follows a strange foxlike creature to Oblivion Island, a mystical world overflowing with once-cherished items taken from their neglectful owners. Trouble follows Haruka and her new friend Teo at every turn as they contend with the island's overbearing ruler, who will stop at nothing to use the mirror for his own sinister plan!


Available now from Amazon and other major retailers.

Seems relativly interesting. Borrowers meets Spirited Away. Gonna wait for it to show up on Netflix. Though, I must say, I'm a bit peeved that Funimation is putting its tag in there before Production IG. Sure they're releasing it in the US but they're claiming importance for dubbing something three years after it's initial release.
