I really hope this is good and takes, as it seems like Miyazaki's son isn't going to be the future of the studio and this looks WAY more interesting than Tales from Earthsea already. Someone's gotta take up the mantle, Miyazaki isn't getting any younger.
Saw it recently at the Edinburgh International Film Festival. Absolutely adorable take on a classic tale. As a Brit of about the right age I vaguely remember the early 90s BBC TV adaptation and haven't seen the live action film. I'll probably see it again when it comes out on general release since I saw the Japanese version and although I usually hate dubbing the Ghibli dubs are usually pretty awesome.
Trailer: The Secret World Of Arrietty
The latest Studio Ghibli film gets a new title and an English-dub trailer, complete with a lead male actor who sounds like he recorded all of his lines while he was very, very high.
Studio Ghibli's latest looks drop-dead gorgeous, even if Miyazaki's not directing it.
