The legendary Japanese animation studio Studio Ghibli has a new film coming out called When Marnie Was There, and today we have the first trailer for it to share with you! The film is an adaptation of the book written by Joan G. Robinson, and it is being directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi (The Secret World of Arrietty). The story follows a young girl who befriends another girl named Marnie who just happens to be a ghost.
The book that the film is based on is number 18 on Hayao Miyazaki's 50 Recommended Children's Books list. It looks like another great movie from Studio Ghibli, and I'll be looking forward to seeing it. The film will be released in Japan in July, but there's not U.S. release date yet. I imagine Disney will eventually pick it up for distribution here in the states. Thanks to Twitch for the heads up!
