What has not been a surprise is how spectacular she is in the role according to some of the reports emerging from the film from viewers.
The talented actress disclosed that while the role was challenging to play because the Princess character is very similar to her personality it was an opporunity she could not pass up because of how special it is to be connected with one of the prestigious Studio Ghibli projects. It is an indication of how special the film studio Studio Ghibli is to her when she is willing to move away from the roles that have made her a Hollywood superstar and take on a 'taskmaster' role in the animated series.

It has been several years since she dominated the movie screens as a sexy, fierce assassin in the "Kill Bill" movies but her sensational scene winning performances in "Elementary" and her voice acting as a Japanese tutor in the animated movie "The Princess of Kaguya" has fans excited about the possibility that this beautiful and impressive actress might return to the big screen as a Hollywood leading lady in a non-animated project in the near future.
