Watch: Official Final Trailer for Studio Ghibli's The Borrowers
It was only a few weeks ago that we shared the first Japanese trailer for The Borrowers, the newest film from animation house Studio Ghibli. This is not directed by Hayao Miyazaki, but by Hiromasa Yonebayashi, however Miyazaki has apparently said that this film "moved him to tears" and he also called Yonebayashi "the first director born and raised at Studio Ghibli." This is based on Mary Norton's children's novels of the same name but is obviously a unique Miyazaki take on the story. I don't exactly know why this is so short, it feels like it just ends abruptly when it should continue, but maybe that's a good thing. Watch below & enjoy!
Watch the "final" Japanese trailer for Studio Ghibli's The Borrowers:
The Borrowers, or Kari-gurashi no Arietty, is directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi, a Studio Ghibli artist and animator who is making his directorial debut with this film. At age 36, Yonebayashi is the youngest person to ever direct a film 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 is distributing in Japan, opening on July 17th this summer, but we don't know when this will hit the US. If it does well over there, Disney will probably hold onto it to release late next year. Look good?

Ugh, Studio Ghibli is pushing out more of their sewage? Studio Ghibli are very poor storytellers. The fantasy presented in many of their movies is just bedtime-story gobbledygook with stilted plotting, muddled internal logic and flat characters. Most of their works lack significant narrative arcs and fail to build dramatic conflict. Seemingly large and important events are built-up but just fizzle-out when it comes to the climax and ending.
