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

The Yahoo! Movies website began streaming a 36-second clip from the American English dub of The Secret World of Arrietty anime film. 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 her family's 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.

Thanks to Daniel Zelter for the news tip.
