One thing that’s been missing from the live action adaptation of Studio Ghibli movie, Kiki’s Delivery Service, has been any mention on Kiki’s sidekick. That sidekick being her talking black cat, Jiji.
Recently an announcement was made announcing the voice actor who will bring the feline to life. Minako Kotobuki is a popular voice actress previously providing a character voice to K-ON! She’s also worked on Samurai Girls/Samurai Bride and Tiger & Bunny, just to name a couple.
The film doesn’t have long to go now with it’s premiere in Japan slated for March 1st. We’ll let you know how that goes, hopefully there’ll be a new trailer or more pics released. And speaking of pics, there’s a couple of new ones below with Jiji in the shot.
