Kiki’s Delivery Service was originally written by Eiko Kadono. Since then, Hayao Miyazaki and Ghibli Studio made the story famous by making it into an anime movie. Fans of Miyazaki were happy to hear that Takashi Shimizu, the director of The Grudge and Ju-On, has set out to recreate the story once more.

The new live-action movie of Kiki’s Delivery Service is said to be an adaption of the first two original books, not the anime by Miyazaki. The story follows the adventures of a younger witch, Kiki, and her faithful companion cat, Jiji. Kiki will be played by a 16 year old actress, Fuka Koshiba. A photo of Koshiba in costume has been released over the internet via Twitch.
