Hayao Miyazaki Makes an Apperance on the Disney Panel


If you are into anime then you know who I am talking about.  For those of you who don't know, he is a legendary director from Japan.  He is responsible for such great films as Princess Mononoke and Howl's Moving Castle.

Miyazaki is colaberating with Disney to bring his film Ponyo to the United States.  Ponyo is about a 5 year old boy who befriends a goldfish princess who wants to become human.

We were shown a great clip from this film.  It was a great ocean scene.  It is really hard to believe that it all hand drawn.  It turns out that talents like Matt Damon, Cate Blanchette, Liam Neeson and Tina Fey are lending their voices to the translation of this film.  Just from the clip alone I know I would love to see this film.  This film will be released on August 14th of this year.

If you are a fan of anime or just a fan of good movies I would suggest checking this out.  Until next time, let me know what you think.

McMurphy out!
