Arrietty Anime Film's U.S. Dub Trailer Streamed
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Disney began streaming a trailer for the North American-dubbed version of Hiromasa Yonebayashi and Studio Ghibli's Arrietty film on Tuesday. The film, which will be titled The Secret World of Arrietty, will receive a theatrical run in North America starting on February 17.
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 U.K. and ran in theaters there in August.
The film re-imagines Mary Norton's 1952 novel The Borrowers by moving the story to a Tokyo suburb. The story revolves around Arrietty, 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."
Producer Frank Marshall revealed in January that Bridgit Mendler is voicing the title character. Joining her in the cast are Amy Poehler, Will Arnett, David Henrie, and Carol Burnett.
Update: Replaced previous embedded video with a video from Walt Disney Studios' official YouTube channel.
