Trailer for U.K. Release of Studio Ghibli’s ‘Arrietty’ Arrives


No word yet on when audiences in the United States will get to see Studio Ghibli’s 2010 release Arrietty in theaters, but the movie is coming to the United Kingdom on July 29 and an English-language trailer has been released to promote it.

Take a look at the trailer, courtesy of Empire:

Based on the classic children’s book The Borrowers, by Mary Norton, Arrietty is directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi from a script by Hayao Miyazaki and Keiko Niwa.

The dubbing voice cast for England will be different than for the eventual American release, likely sometime next year. The U.K. version will feature Saoirse Ronan, Tom Holland, Olivia Colman and Mark Strong.

The American version will feature the voices of Bridgit Mendler, David Henrie, Amy Poehler, Carol Burnett, Matt Levin, Will Arnett and Tress MacNeille.

What do you think, Animag readers? Does this look like another hit for Studio Ghibli?

    Yeah. I think so. lol I’m really looking forward to seeing Studio Ghibli’s take on The Borrowers. Even if for some reason it comes out on DVD, I’ll definately be watching this.

    Can’t wait, just hope they show it at a cinema near me. I’m going to wait until after I’ve seen the film to read the book this time, I made an effort with Tales of Earthsea to read the books beforehand and think it would have been better if I wasn’t familiar with (and really liked) the story, still a great film though.
