Well if you call Summer 2010 “on the horizon“, but I bet that’s the timing of Japanese release – It’ll probably take at least another 6 months beyond that to make it stateside. Anyway the fact that something from Studio Ghibli is coming out with anything has already brought my day from good to grrrEEAAAT!! Hayao Miyazaki and his legendary Studio Ghibli have recently announced the name of their upcoming film. From Twitch film, we get the following except:
Studio Ghibli made the official announcement of their new full length feature film titled Karigurashi no Arrietty (The Borrower Arrietty). The film will be an adaptation of Mary Norton’s Carnegie Medal winning novel The Borrowers and, as hinted earlier on GhibliWorld, will be directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi.
I remember the 80’s cartoon The Littles, and while barely appealed to me, even as a kid, I’m willing to bet that now, as an adult, I’ll be on board with the story if Miyazaki has anything to do with it. Miyazaki, to me, can do absolutely no wrong. I still haven’t seen Ponyo (since I refused to see it dubbed in the theaters) but I’m sure it’s as amazing as they say and I should be able to take it in before Arrietty comes out for sure. How’s this news grab all you Ghibli fans? Sound interesting?
