Producer Frank Marshall revealed more members of the North American dub for Arrietty: The Borrower, the latest theatrical film from Studio Ghibli, on his Twitter feed on Tuesday. Marshall posted, "Beginning to record Arrietty's parents, who will be voiced by [Saturday Night Live/Parks and Recreation's] Amy Poehler and [Arrested Development/Running Wilde's] Will Arnett. This should be fun..."
On Wednesday, Marshall revealed that David Henrie (Wizards of Waverly Place) and Carol Burnett (The Carol Burnett Show) as the voices of the human "beans." Marshall had already revealed that Bridgit Mendler would play the title character.
The film is directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi, with supervision by Hayao Miyazaki. It updates Mary Norton's 1952 novel The Borrowers by moving the story to a modern Tokyo suburb. The story follows the "little people" who live under the floorboards of a regular human family.
