About Shelby Jones

I run the place, and keep it clean. Recent college grad and child at heart. In my spare time I start half-baked businesses and try to finish my massive pile of in progress movie reviews. I also founded SquidFlicks, and its parent company, Omega Squid Studios.

Studio Ghibli debuts The Red Turtle, joint French-Japanese animation project

The-Red-Turtle-Ghibli

The Red Turtle

It will be a story without dialogue, but based on the trailer I don’t think that’s going to take anything away from the experience.

This is the first Studio Ghibli co-production, and it features French animator¬†Michael Dudok De Wit. His charcoal-penned style is distinctly different from Ghibli’s previous films.

It will be at Cannes Film Festival this summer. French release is slated for June 29, with a later Japanese release in September.
