posted on by Egan Loo
The Apple computer company's website for trailers in QuickTime format is hosting three videos for Shinsuke Sato and Production I.G's Oblivion Island: Haruka and the Magic Mirror (Hottarake no Shima - Haruka to Mahō no Kagami) fantasy film. The first two videos are the third 30-second teaser trailer (standard-definition or 1080p high-definition) and the 90-second full trailer (SD or 1080p). The third video is a five-minute promotional video (SD or 1080p) of an extended sneak preview into the world of Oblivion Island. Downloadable iPod versions of each video are also available.
The computer-animated feature follows a girl named Haruka as she discovers where all of our childhood keepsakes and memorabilia go. Creatures from a different dimension gather these trinkets and forgotten treasures as their owners grow up. With their booty, the creatures have built their own city called Oblivion Island.
Hirotaka Adachi, the author better known under the pen name Otsuichi for writing the novel inspirations of the Goth live-action film and the Calling you manga, is co-writing the screenplay with director Sato (The Princess Blade). Production I.G is producing this project with Fuji Television Network to mark Fuji's 50th anniversary. The distribution company TOHO will release the film in Japan on August 22.
