The CinemaBlend.com and Moviefone.com websites have posted two more clips from the forthcoming American English dub of The Secret World of Arrietty anime film this week. The clips show the title character trying to convince her parents to let her join a "borrowing mission" with her father. Arrietty and her father then go on the mission.
The film will open in North America on February 17.
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." Will Arnett and Amy Poehler — a real-life couple — voice Arrietty's father and mother.
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.
