Kiki’s Delivery Service to be Adapted into Live-Action Movie

Kiki's Delivery Service to be Adapted into Live-Action Movie

Studio Ghibli’s “Kiki’s Delivery Service (魔女の宅急便)” directed by Hayao Miyazaki is one of my favorite classic anime movie, and it has been confirmed that it will be adapted into a live-action movie.

The movie is set to premier next Spring, and it is being directed by Japanese filmaker Shimizu Takashi, whom is best known as the creator of the Ju-on series of horror films.

The young witch Kiki will be played by 16 year old Koshiba Fuuka. This is her debut movie role, and she was chosen from an audition of about 500 candidates.

    So hows this going to work? Isn’t Kiki set in a place like France? I mean I know Kiki has black hair. But does this mean the boy is going to be Japanese with Dyed Blonde hair?
