[q]That's a pretty worthwhile and profound sentiment.[/q]

It is.... and one that's far, far better expressed by LeGuin, without those obvious tropes.

This one sends me to sleep for some reason, I just lose interest I guess.

I enjoyed some of the animation though, in particular Hort town (I think?) - the settings are really nice.

LeGuin is perhaps the most underutilized author of the 20th century. Several of her books should be stunning films. Don’t know why they aren’t.

No one's figured out how to Disney them up yet? I'll pass. I don't really need to see the woke version of Earthsea. It's a beautiful and wonderful thing, but there's too much to play with there...every middling lit class instructor last 2 years of high school and fresh and sophomore year chewed this into an unrecogizable mess peddling their own clever take and charting of all the symbolism.
