Watch: Official US Trailer for Ghibli's 'Secret World of Arrietty' Movie
No friendship is too small. Disney has unveiled the official US trailer for Studio Ghibli's animated adventure The Secret World of Arrietty, the latest Studio Ghibli feature, directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi, to get re-dubbed and released a year late in America. This version features a voice cast with Bridgit Mendler, Amy Poehler, Carol Burnett, Will Arnett, David Henrie and Moises Arias. We've already seen some trailers for this before, including the UK one recently with its own voice cast, but this still looks good no matter how they present it. It's a tale of two friends, and it looks great. Hitting US theaters in February!

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?

I don't know... usually Walt Disney does an amazing job with English voice overs for Studio Ghibli films, but this... sounds a bit off.

I think it's the way David Henrie was talking.

I like it very much! Always loved Ghibli movies, this is no exception... I wonder what the music underlay is? Seems like Sigur Ros, but... I dont know they sang it...

It's actually a song by Jonsi, the lead singer of Sigur Ros on his own.

And whe you ask "Howl" are you refering to ask about "Howl's Moving Castle" ? Because it's another spectacular Studio Ghibli film. ^.^

Oh nae, those voices are weird. Maybe because I already watched it with the UK voices in the cinema. I liked the film, it was pretty decent. Not the best Ghibli have to offer though.

I'm very much looking forward to this movie! I'm cool with the dubbing and all, although the boy sounds a little old. BUT WHY DID THEY CHANGE THE SONG!? it was amazing and doesn't have the same feeling as the japanese one. 🙁

Is it just me or is everything that happens in the movie, the entire plot from start to finish, is in the trailer?
