Giovanni no Shima

The new Production I.G. film Giovanni's Island is scheduled for a 2/22/14 release. New trailer is out:

Quote:
In the aftermath of the most devastating conflict mankind had ever experienced, the tiny island of Shikotan became part of the Sakhalin Oblast... and on the unhealed border in this remote corner of the world, friendship among children from two different countries timidly blossomed, striving to overcome language barriers and the waves of history. Inspired by true events.

On August 15th, they told us we had lost the war. At that time, we did not really understand. Then one day, everything changed. Many soldiers, wearing uniforms we had never seen before, arrived on the island. That was the day I met Tanya.

This is I.G.? It sure looks like a Ghibli film, and it gives me a mix of Grave of the Fireflies and Now and Then, Here and There vibes.

I sure hope the kid calling himself Campanella isn't a death flag.

I think that they are named after Giovanni Domenico Campanella. If so - there are no real death flags for either of them.

That may be where Miyazawa got the names of the characters in Night on the Galactic Railroad, but this film is definitely referencing Miyazawa -- the director even says so in the interview you linked to:

But then I thought that I wanted to add a fantastic element to the story, and this came from Kenji Miyazawa's novel, Night on the Galactic Railroad. The novel and its world are a sort of psychological driving force for the two brothers, it's what sustains them in face of hardship and provides a little escape from the chaos around them, but also the key to interpret what's happening.
