Oblivion Island: Haruka and the Magic Mirror - Preview & competition

Oblivion Island

Preview by Jack Foley

OBLIVION Island: Haruka And The Magic Mirror is an action-packed fantasy adventure that sees high school girl Haruka magically transported to the titular island, whose colourful inhabitants collect humanity’s forgotten belongings.

A heart-warming fairytale packed with high-octane adventure and set in a lush fantasy world, Oblivion Island is a family-friendly film that evokes the works of Pixar and Studio Ghibli.

Sixteen-year-old Haruka’s mother died when she was young, leaving her a hand mirror as a treasured memento. But as the years pass Haruka forgets about the mirror, which is eventually lost when she moves house.

One day while visiting a shrine, Haruka spots a fox-like creature collecting odds and ends. Following it, she finds herself magically transported to the mysterious Oblivion Island, a bustling town where everything is built from people’s lost and forgotten belongings.

Here is a chance for Haruka to recover her mother’s mirror – but as humans are strictly forbidden from setting foot on the island both our heroine and Teo, the fox spirit she followed, will have to tread carefully. And when they discover that The Baron, Oblivion Island’s flamboyantly villainous ruler, also want to get his clutches on the mirror, the adventure is thrown into top gear.

Add a trio of inept gangsters, a scene-stealing soft toy sheep and one very stylish airship, and you’ve got a fast-paced fantasy film that will appeal to the whole family!

Oblivion Island is helmed by film director, screenplay writer and videogame designer Shinsuke Sato.

Oblivion Island: Haruka and the Magic Mirror comes to DVD and DVD and Blu-ray Combo pack on April 1, 2013, and courtesy of Manga Entertainment.
