Daisy Ridley voices Studio Ghibli's Only Yesterday in the NA release trailer
It’s 1982, and Taeko is 27 years old, unmarried, and has lived her whole life in Tokyo. While traveling by train to visit family in the country, memories flood back of her as a schoolgirl in 1966, and she starts to question whether she has been true to herself. This new new Studio Ghibli produced English voice cast includes Daisy Ridley of STAR WARS fame and Dev Patel (SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE). You can check out the trailer for the North American release below!
It's too early to tell what kind of career Daisy Ridley will have outside of STAR WARS, but being involved with animated fare, like a Studio Ghibli production, certainly isn't a bad start. Ghibli's track record speaks for itself and despite the fact this one is nearly 15 years old, I'm thinking people will be willing to check out what they can do with the English dub.
ONLY YESTERDAY will be released in NYC on Jan 1st, with a nationwide release on Feb 26th.
