Tales from Earthsea
Ged (Sparrowhawk) is a wandering mage who encounters the young troubled Prince Arren, disturbed by guilt from killing his father and stealing the magical sword. Sparrowhawk takes him to the farm of Tanar, who used to be a priestess, where a mysterious little orphan girl Therru also lives. Therru doesn't trust or like Arren very much. Sparrowhawk discovers that a powerful wizard named Cob is going to upset the balance of life.
There are dragons, direwolves, a cruel despot and even a magical sword. This is a high fantasy film and one of Ghibli's best. To the people who love Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones, this anime film is for you.
I rate this a 9/10.
Tense moments: Quite a bit
