    Next Studio Ghibli Film announced!!! ('The Borrower Arrietty')

    Grumble Grumble Grumble

    It appears that the next anime movie from Studio Ghibli has been announced, but is being directed by newcomer Hiromasa Yonebayashi. And once again, Studio Ghibli is adopting a western children story...

    Will keep on the lookout for this. Maybe I'll get lucky with an early screening like I did with Ponyo.

    I went into Ponyo with reservations, but I was pleasently surprised at just how enjoyable the film was. Let's hope this new director is good.

    But then again Studio Ghibli doesn't let just any one attach their name to a film.

    Further details are coming out... It appears that Studio Ghibli will localize the story to a modern Japanese locale...

    I think it's time we saw them do some dark movies based off H.P. Lovecraft stories or Grimm stories.
    Great post, thanks! I was really happy with Howl's Moving Castle and Princess Mononoke.

    In all honesty I'd like them to make a Japanese-based story again.



    ... And after checking the internet for a second or two it seems that's exactly what's going to happen.
    Isao Takahata is going to direct Taketori Monogatari (The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter) in the near future.

    What a coincidence! I spotted the book, The Borrowers Afield, on display at my local library during my visit today.

    Thanks for the news and links, Len-san. I know I will be following this story. In the meanwhile, I have to finish watching that movie directed by Morita Hiroyuki.
