GKids describes the film's story:

Sent from her foster home in the city one summer to a sleepy town by the sea in Hokkaido, Anna dreams her days away among the marshes. She believes she's outside the invisible magic circle to which most people belong – and shuts herself off from everyone around her, wearing her “ordinary face.” Anna never expected to meet a friend like Marnie, who does not judge Anna for being just what she is. But no sooner has Anna learned the loveliness of friendship than she begins to wonder about her newfound friend...

Below is the English-subtitled trailer from Australian distributor Madman Entertainment:

The English dub cast is as follows:

  • Anna Sasaki – Hailee Steinfeld
  • Marnie – Kiernan Shipka
  • Setsu Oiwa – Grey Griffin
  • Kiyomasa Oiwa – John C. Reilly
  • Hisako – Vanessa Williams
  • Yoriko – Geena Davis
  • Sayaka – Ava Acres
  • Nobuko – Raini Rodriguez
  • Mrs. Kadoya – Kathy Bates
  • Nan – Ellen Burstyn
  • Older Woman – Catherine O'Hara

When Marnie Was There adapts Joan G. Robinson's classic English children's novel of the same name. In his second film, director Hiromasa Yonebayashi (2010's The Secret World of Arrietty) has shifted the setting from the novel's Great Britain to a Japanese village on the shores of Hokkaido. Yonebayashi wrote the screenplay with Keiko Niwa (The Secret World of Arrietty) and Masashi Ando (A Letter to Momo, Spirited Away, Paprika). Ando also handled the character designs and animation direction. Takatsugu Muramatsu composed the film's soundtrack.
