If you, like us, love the work of Hayao Miyazaki, then you'll probably fall in love with The Secret World of Arrietty. Based on a series of children's books called The Borrowers by author Mary Norton, the animated film is set to be released in 10 days. But if you can't wait that long, we've got six awesome clips that'll make it worth the wait.
This brand-new 2-D animated opus from Miyazaki—he's the guy who brought us the wonderful Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away and Ponyo—will be released across theaters in the U.S. on Feb. 17 by Disney, and this is one film we're really excited to see.
And so, we hope, will you, after you've taken a look at these delightful clips taken from the film, giving us a whimsical and wonderful tiny itsy-bitsy look (pun intended) inside The Secret World of Arrietty.
(OK, the last one's actually a music video, but it's got cutesy scenes in it, so it's worth a look.)
Below is a short movie blurb, just to give you a small idea of what the movie's all about (puns were not intended here, but we kinda feel we're on an awesome roll):
The Clock family are four-inch-tall people who live anonymously in another family's residence, borrowing simple items to make their home. Life changes for the Clocks when their daughter, Arrietty, is discovered.
Enjoy the clips, and let us know what you think.
