“Hiromasa Yonebayashi, director of Ghibli’s later efforts The Secret World of Arriety and When Marnie Was There, takes the reigns for the first Studio Ponoc effort – and has maintained everything that makes Ghibli animations so special in the first place. He doesn’t try to forge a singular identity for the new studio that makes it stand separate from the animation goliath that predates it. Instead, he shows how closely he’s studied the masterpieces of Miyazaki and Isao Takahata to create a magical fairytale that’s incredibly worthy of standing alongside the masterworks of either of those legendary animators.” Alistair Ryder – Film Inquiry
