I usually go to Twitch for my other Blog Cinehouse as it has a great depth of indie/shorts/arthouse movies but I had to post this one inThe Peoples movies. Below is the new teaser trailer for Studio Ghibli’s next released project Karigurashi No Arrietty (The Borrowers).
If you know Japanese cinema you know when animation (or anime) is released its a major thing and even more when its Studio Ghibli well its even bigger!!!The animation has been directed by Studio Ghibli’s youngest ever director (36 years old) Hiromasa Yonebayashi who has worked on the work by the great master Hayao Miyazaki’s classics Princess Mononoke, Howl’s Moving Castle and Spirited Away. This is his directoral debut and if this is like the studio’s other work it will do well. The animation is based on the Mary Norton Book The Borrowers with the great man himself writing the screenplay.
Miyazaki and Isao Takahata his long time friend and partner have looked at creating the book for over 40 years and it must have been a great honour for Yonebayashi when they passed the project to him.The movie is due a Summer release in its native Japan, July 17th but for UK and Ireland we will probably have to wait at least 1 year or more if we do get a cinematic release date, USA possibly less.
synopsis: 14-year-old Arrietty and the rest of the Clock family live in peaceful anonymity as they make their own home from items “borrowed” from the house’s human inhabitants. However, life changes for the Clocks when a human boy discovers Arrietty. – imdb
