Dion to sing OST to Japanese movie

Songstress Celine Dion is to record the theme song for the forthcoming Japanese movie Maboroshi no Yamataikoku.

The film is set for release at the start of November and Dion has confirmed that she will record the soundtrack this week. Japan Today reports that the diva will sing 'World To Believe In-– Himiko Fantasia' in the Japanese language.

Maboroshi no Yamataikoku tells the story of a woman (played by Sayuri Yoshinaga) who with her blind husband (Naoto Takenaka) are searching for the lost kingdom of Yamataikoku, according to Tokyograph. It is thought that the song will be used in a scene which involves Yoshinaga appearing as the legendary queen Himiko.

Dion explained: "It's an honour for me to sing a song for a Japanese film, starring one of Japan’s most famous actresses. It's also an honour that I was chosen to represent Himiko which is culturally symbolic for Japan."
