Added DiffLines:

* FamilyUnfriendlyViolence: There is a few in this film. For example:
** In the opening, there are two dragons fighting each other, and the fight ends when one of the dragons tears the other's ''throat'' out.
** Later, when Arren's father, the king, is walking down a hall to his chambers, Arren sneaks up to him and plunges a knife into his stomach! The pool of blood leaking near him doesn't help either.
** At the end of the film, once Arren finally unsheathes his sword, he charges at Cob and ''cuts his right hand off''. The severed limb is laying in a pool of blood. [[spoiler: However, Cob reattaches his hand.]]

* AdaptationDistillation: It's a mix of several of the books. Le Guin said what confused her most about the film was she kept expecting it to follow one of the original plots. If you really want to be specific it mixes the storyline of The Farthest Shore with some elements of Tehanu.

A StudioGhibli animated film based on the first, third, and fourth novels in the ''Literature/{{Earthsea}}'' series by Creator/UrsulaKLeGuin. Le Guin's response to the film can be found [[http://www.ursulakleguin.com/GedoSenkiResponse.html here]]. In a nutshell, she thought the film suffered in comparison to her own novels and that is was overly violent and [[{{Anvilicious}} preachy]], and that the characters are too white (which is a serious issue for Le Guin), but that the movie was merely dissatisfying rather than outright bad. Given Le Guin's [[DisownedAdaptation vehemently negative opinions]] of all prior attempts at adapting her work to other media this can be interpreted as getting off lightly. (Critics broadly agreed with Le Guin. The movie scores 41% on RottenTomatoes, by far the worst score of all the Ghibli films.)

The film was directed by Creator/HayaoMiyazaki's son Goro, as Miyazaki had planned to retire. The elder Miyazaki's own reaction to the end product reportedly caused some friction between father and son, as well as some concern on the part of Studio Ghibli management over their ongoing lack of a new generation of directors capable of taking over for founding directors Miyazaki and Creator/IsaoTakahata.
