The Secret World of Arrietty

Today, Friday the 17th of February 2012 is the release date in America for The Secret World of Arrietty. This is one of the latest movies to come from Studio Ghibli. The movie was based on a British author’s work from the 1950s called “The Borrowers” and the book was adapted to the screen with the help of the great Miyazaki. These last few films were not directed by Miyazaki, but were definitely influenced by him. The Earth and the Sea (which I did not watch) was apparently directed by Hayao Miyazaki’s son and this film was directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi. This film is focusing on the story of a family of little people who call themselves Borrowers because they take things from households in order to sustain themselves. I’d like to think of the term Borrowers as a more polite way of saying LITTLE THIEVES!! I first saw the previews for this movie a couple of months ago and I have been anticipating the release of the film ever since. My plans are to go today and watch the premier of the movie at the Market Fair Cinema with my sister for the 9:30 showing. If anyone is in the Fayetteville area and willing to meet up with me then shoot me an email. My plans are to give a review after I have seen the film tonight! Hopefully that will be posted either Saturday or Sunday. Anyways go support Studio Ghibli and enjoy the movie!

  1. This is a very cute movie and I enjoyed it. It’s not my favorite in terms of Studio Ghibli but it is sweet.
