Second Alternate Trailer for Hayao Miyazaki's Ponyo
Just last week, Disney debuted the official US trailer for Ponyo, the newest Hayao Miyazaki film hitting theaters here fairly soon. However, I feel like the trailer got lost in the mix last week, with the debut of Transformers 2 and everything. Additionally, Disney has released a slightly different version of that same trailer that includes an extended segment in the middle highlighting the actors they hired to voice this US release of the film. Drew McWeeny at HitFix just reviewed it: "Ponyo is a singular experience, animation as pure emotion, a love story and an adventure and one of the real treats for 2009 so far." I hope you enjoy!
Watch the alternate trailer for Hayao Miyazaki's Ponyo:
An animated adventure centered on a 5-year-old boy and his relationship with a goldfish princess who longs to become human. You can also check out an old Japanese teaser trailer right here if interested.
Ponyo on the Cliff is both written and directed by master animator Hayao Miyazaki, of Castle in the Sky, My Neighbor Totoro, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, and Howl's Moving Castle previously. The film was animated at the legendary Studio Ghibli. This was released in Japan last summer and was a huge hit at the box office. Disney is bringing Ponyo on the Cliff, now known as just Ponyo, to theaters on August 14th.
