The studio responsible for My Neighbour Totoro and Spirited Away offers more myth in the form of Tales from Earthsea, an adaptation of Ursula Le Guin's famous franchise. The trailers look promising. I loved this world as a kid but I still draw the line at getting sucked into My Neighbour Totoro.
Hence the Japanese title; more martial than its English equivalent. Note to self: Must get round to watching the Earthsea adaptation that triggered a bun-fight between Le Guin and Sci Fi Channel a while back.

Mein Freund, you are missing out in supreme weirdness by skipping Toturo. I like most of what Ghibli produces. Spirited away is most cool.
I loved the earthsea books as a teen and the Sci-Fi channel version kinda sucked.
