Totemo Kuru!!! (So Cool!)

Hey it’s Tayls again! =D

For those who don’t know, I am a HUGE, extra-gooberific fan of *Hayao Miyazaki’s art, films, words, you name it! I have been aware for a while that He–and I must capitalize His pronouns because He is so godlike–has been working on a *Studio Ghibli remake of  The Borrowers. Now, for those of you who remember The Borrowers, you may be skeptical of a remake. But I assure you that your doubts are unneeded because He will do the story great justice. With His flawless animation, beautifully complex artwork, and AMAZING directing, this movie is one to look out for. The US is due for an English dubb release some time soon and a new UK trailer has already been released!

Also! Hayao Miyazaki and his son, Goro are collaborating on yet ANOTHER new film for Studio Ghibli that has, until now, been virtually unheard of. (And I am an avid follower of all his work.) It’s a film adaption of a 1980 2-volume manga by Tetsuro Sayama, and the official English title is From Up on Poppy Hill. I am SUPER excited as it will be following the format of one of my personal faves by Miyazaki, Whisper of the Heart. (It’s sort of a realistic drama, with a sprinkle of hinted-at romance and a heaping pile of well-paced mystery.)

*Hayao Miyazaki is one of Japan’s greatest animation directors. Co-founded Studio Ghibli in 1985 with Isao Takahata. Now Walt Disney Company has international rights for all films produced and released by Studio Ghibli. Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle, and Ponyo are the newest movies released in the US.
