Check This Out: Eye-Catching Poster for 'The Secret World of Arrietty'
This deserves a "whoa!" Disney has unveiled their first official poster for The Secret World of Arrietty, the recent Studio Ghibli movie (released in Japan in 2010) that's finally getting a theatrical release in the US next February. Yahoo put up the poster, which is certainly stunning, as it features the miniature Arrietty, a four-inch tall "little person" who lives under the house where the other guy looking down at her, Sho, also lives with his family. We ran a UK trailer back in July with different voices, but Disney has its own cast and we have yet to see that. I think it's a very creative and eye-catching poster that makes me want to see this.
Arrietty, aka Kari-gurashi no Arietty or The Borrowers originally, is directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi, a Studio Ghibli artist and animator who is making his directorial debut with this film. At age 36, Yonebayashi was the youngest person to ever direct an entire feature for Ghibli. The screenplay was written by master filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki himself and is based on Mary Norton's series of children's fantasy novels of the same name, first published in 1952. The Toho Company release this in Japan last summer, but Disney is finally bringing Arietty to theaters in the US starting on February 17th, 2012 early next year. Look good?
