Gedo Senki US Release in Jeopardy

posted on by Jonathan Mays
Earthsea author calls out Sci Fi Channel for sitting on rights

Goro Miyazaki's Gedo Senki (Tales of Earthsea) may not see a US release until at least 2009, according to Earthsea author Ursula K. Le Guin. “Mr. Miyazaki's movie won't be shown as long as the Sci Fi Channel people sit on their rights, which they have until '09, unless they decide to stop being a dog in the manger,” she tells the New York Times.

The Sci Fi Channel aired a live action Tales of Earthsea series in 2004. According to the article, representatives from the Sci Fi Channel did not respond to calls seeking a comment.

Gedo Senki was Japan's highest grossing film this summer, bringing in more than $60 million in the box office.
