Â Here is an article aboutÂ Ms. Le GuinÂ responses so farÂ on the Goro Miyazaki animÃ© of “Gedo Senki,” or “Tales From Earthsea,” based primarily on the third Earthsea novel, “The Furthest Shore.”
The article tellsÂ a tale of classical elements all to itself: artist-father, artist-son
relationship; artist’s relationship to the results of an interpretation of her creation in another format; different rights of ownership and release ofÂ the new work in different countries, and more.
“When American audiences will have the chance to judge Goro Miyazakiâ€™s work for themselves is an open question. There is currently no plan to distribute â€œGedo Senkiâ€ to theaters in the United States; the rights are tied up with a 2004 Sci-Fi Channel mini-series.”
