New Ghibli movie for 2010

Thanks to Marc Hairston for the information that the website for Karigurashi no Arriety, due in Summer 2010 from Studio Ghibli, has just opened. Based on Mary Norton’s book The Borrowers, the film will be directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi and supervised by Hayao Miyazaki.

Isao Takahata’s next movie, Taketori Monogatari (The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter) is based on a traditional folktale, and is also scheduled for a 2010 release although no date has been announced. Takahata’s last movie was released in 1999.
