Ghibli film screened in Australia next month; GKids to screen it in N. America in March

Australia's Madman Entertainment began streaming the English-subtitled trailer for Goro Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli's From Up On Poppy Hill anime film on Monday. Madman Entertainment will present the film as part of its Reel Anime 2012 series in Australian theaters from September 13 to September 26.

GKids will release the film in North American theaters next March, after holding a run in Los Angeles County for Academy Award qualification in the "November time frame." It also plans to release it on Blu-ray Disc and DVD. Studio Ghibli is producing an English-language version of the film, and Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall are co-executive producing the English version.

After his directorial debut on Tales from Earthsea, Miyazaki (the son of studio founder Hayao Miyazaki) adapted the shōjo manga Kokuriko-Zaka Kara by Chizuru Takahashi and Tetsurō Sayama. From Up On Poppy Hill "follows a group of Yokohama teens in their quest against a wrecking ball that threatens to destroy their school's clubhouse in preparation for the 1964 Tokyo Olympics." Hayao Miyazaki scripted the film. The film originally premiered in theaters in Japan in July 2011.
