Hi Bryan Here….

So the key animator from ‘Ponyo’, ‘Spirited Away’, and ‘Princess Mononke’ to name a few has gotten his first chance to direct a film.  And that film is called ‘Arrietty’.  Looks great.  Will be looking forward to more films from this guy.  IMDB says: “14-year-old Arrietty and the rest of the Clock family live in peaceful anonymity as they make their own home from items “borrowed” from the house’s human inhabitants. However, life changes for the Clocks when a human boy discovers Arrietty.”  Enjoy the trailer.

Sparky Shagwell’s Snap Judgement:

Hmmm. “Inspired by the Borrowers”? They should just call this Borrowers 2: Forbidden Love.
