Disney to bring new Studio Ghibli film to states

Disney will be bringing another animated feature from the studio of master animator Hayao Miyazaki to the states in 2011. Arrietty the Borrower, which is directed by Miyazaki’s key animator Hiromasa Yonebayashi, is currently getting its English voice overs. Frank Marshall ( @LeDoctor) has been tweeting selected information about who the voices will be: The lead role of the borrower sprite Arriety is being voiced by Bridgit Mendler (Disney’s Good Luck Charlie), her parents are being dubbed by Will Arnett and Amy Poehler. David Henrie (Disney’s Wizards of Waverly Place) and Carol Burnett are the human characters.

Arrietty the Borrower is based on Mary Norton’s 1952 book, The Borrower. Although the film has already been released in Japan, Marshall says the date for the stateside release hasn’t been set. Probably later this year when it won’t conflict with Cars 2. Although this TV trailer is in Japanese with english subtitles, you can spot the amazing artistry that went into creating this film:

I’m in love.

    I can’t wait to see this. I’ve been waiting since last summer, and I enjoy most of Studio Ghibli’s films.
