Walt Disney Pictures began streaming another clip from its English dub of Hiromasa Yonebayashi and Studio Ghibli's The Secret World of Arrietty (Karigurashi no Arrietty) anime film:

The Wall Street Journal newspaper also posted a characer sketch, background art, and stills from the film.

In his directorial debut, Yonebayashi 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. Arrietty's family tries to remain hidden from the human "beans."

The film will open in North America on February 17. The film already opened in Japan in July 2010, and then it opened in the United Kingdom last August with a different English dub than the North American one.
