Ponyo watch

Posted below is a new "Ponyo On A Cliff by the Sea" trailer, from the French-language release.

This is all hand-drawn, from director Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli. Those who have seen it describe it as “very similar to 'My Neighbor Totoro' in tone, with a simpler plot that focuses more on the emotions of the young protagonists than anything else, and the animation is gorgeous.”

As usual, Daniel Thomas MacInnes' "The Ghibli Blog: Conversations on Ghibli" provides the best coverage leading up to the U.S. release of the film (by Disney) on August 14, 2009 :

Thank you so much for all your kind words. I work hard to uncover and share all this great material, and provide my own insights into the vast canon of Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata, as well as their peers. Very often, this is a journey of discovery for me as well, and I'm always doing my best to improve.

If you ever need to use anything you find on the Ghibli Blog, by all means, help yourselves. Thank you again, and best wishes.
