Miyazaki and “The Borrowers”.

July 5, 2010

Combining two of my loves: coffee and one of my favorite Studio Ghibli films – Kiki from Kiki’s Delivery Service!

i’ll be trying the above at work later!

I really love Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibili. I have never been disappointed in any of the movies put out by them, and am always overly excited when I hear about a new one. So color me excited, because I just found these teaser trailers for the next one titled ” The Borrowers Arrietty ” which was inspired by Mary Norton’s fantasy book filled with tiny people.

The Borrowers is a series of children’s fantasy novels by Mary Norton about tiny people who live in the homes of big people and “borrow” things to survive while keeping their existence unknown. The central characters of the novels are a borrower family surnamed Clock: Pod, Homily and their spirited teenage daughter, Arrietty.

No doubt Miyazaki will transform this story into something more magical than it already is. It is supposed to be released in Japan on July 17th, 2010 – but I couldn’t find a US release date. Hopefully sooner than later!
