Studio Ghibli has brought us some of the most beloved animated films of all time, including MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO, HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE, PRINCESS MONONOKE and SPIRITED AWAY. Now Disney has partnered with the studio to bring its newest treasure, THE SECRET WORLD OF ARRIETTY, to the United States. From the award-winning novel THE BORROWERS by Mary Norton, THE SECRET WORLD OF ARRIETTY tells the story of Arrietty, a borrower--a tiny person who borrows items like sugar cubes to survive--who lives in the little nooks of a suburban home with her parents Pod and Homily. Arrietty, Pod and Homily continue to take up minuscule residence unnoticed until a twelve-year-old boy named Shawn sees Arrietty in the act of borrowing, and a secret friendship is developed that puts Arrietty's family's covert existence in jeopardy.
THE SECRET WORLD OF ARRIETTY is directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi, the protégé of Studio Ghibli master Hayao Miyazaki and the youngest director to have graduated from Ghibli's cell animation school. Featuring the voice talents of the amazing Carol Burnett, Disney star Bridgit Mendler as Arrietty, real-life married couple Amy Poehler and Will Arnett as her parents Pod and Homily and Mendler's WIZARDS OF WAVERLY PLACE co-star David Henrie as Shawn, THE SECRET WORLD OF ARRIETTY boasts stunning animation and a charming, fantastical fable that will warm your heart.
