1st-time director Hiromasa Yonebayashi's Ghibli film to open in U.S. on February 17

The /Film website began streaming an exclusive 52-second clip from the American English dub of The Secret World of Arrietty anime film on Tuesday. The video's scene features Carol Burnett and Amy Poehler's roles as the housekeeper Hara and Arrietty's mother. The full theatrical trailer debuted in the United States last October.

First-time director Hiromasa Yonebayashi re-imagines Mary Norton's 1952 novel The Borrowers by moving the story to a Tokyo suburb. The story revolves around Arrietty (voiced by Bridgit Mendler), a member of the "little people" who live under the floorboards of a regular human family's home, and their struggle to remain hidden from the human "beans."

The movie originally opened in Japanese theaters in July 2010 with supervision by Ghibli co-founder Hayao Miyazaki. The film also received a different English dub in the United Kingdom, and the film already ran in theaters there in August.
