First image from live-action Kiki’s Delivery Service movie

Kiki's Delivery Service

(From Anime News Network) The first still image from the upcoming live-action adaptation of Eiko Kadono’s popular children’s novel series Majo no Takkyūbin was released in Japan.

The image features 16-year-old Fūka Koshiba as the young witch Kiki, the character made famous by Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli’s 1989 anime film adaptation Kiki’s Delivery Service.

The live-action film adaptation is slated to open in Japan in spring 2014.

Takashi Shimizu (The Grudge/Juon, Tomie: Rebirth) is directing the film. Koshiba, an accomplished figure skater (she can perform the triple loop jump), was chosen from 35,390 candidates in the “Girls Audition 2011″ competition.

She then made her acting debut as the sister of actress Emi Takei (Rurouni Kenshin) in the 2012 television series Iki mo Dekinai Natsu.

She was chosen from an audition of about 500 for Majo no Takkyūbin, her first film role.

Satoko Okudera (Summer Wars, Wolf Children, The Princess and the Pilot) is writing the script for the film.
