*Edit- A review of ‘PONYO’ from our fellow Babbler: https://babbleon5.wordpress.com/2009/11/15/ponyo-an-anime-delight/
From the Academy Award®-winning director and world-renowned Japanese animation legend Hayao Miyazaki comes PONYO, a story inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale “The Little Mermaid.” Already a box-office success in Japan, the story of a young and overeager goldfish named Ponyo (voiced by NOAH CYRUS) and her quest to become human features an outstanding roster of voice talent, including CATE BLANCHETT, MATT DAMON, TINA FEY, FRANKIE JONAS, CLORIS LEACHMAN, LIAM NEESON, LILY TOMLIN and BETTY WHITE.
I’m really excited that Disney is bringing this film to the states. I originally was going to ‘pirate’ a japanese version to watch since anime films rarely make it to the states. Hayao Miyazaki, famed director in japan has a brilliant track record with anime films. I’ve listed a few below.
Also, watch the new trailer of ‘Ponyo’ and leave your comments below as always.
(Perhaps my favorite Miyazaki film)
