It's been revealed that Kuraki Mai has written the song "Wake me up" as the theme song for the live-action adaptation movie 'Majo no Takkyubin' (aka 'Kiki's Delivery Service') scheduled to open in theaters on March 1st.
'Majo no Takkyubin' is a masterpiece that Kuraki has an emotional attachment for. She wrote the song while imaging the movie. The last time she provided a theme song for a movie was "PUZZLE" for 'Meitantei Conan Shikkoku no Tsuisekisha' about 5 years ago.

In addition, Osono will be played by Ono Machiko, Tonbo by Hirota Ryohei, Kiki's mother Kokiri by Miyazawa Rie, and father Okino by Tsutsui Michitaka.
