Ghibli’s next film: The Borrowers

Hayao Miyazaki’s Studio Ghibli has announced its next animated film, an adaptation of Mary Norton’s 1952 classic kid’s book, The Borrowers. Miyazaki-san will produce, but the actual direction will fall to one of his key animators Hiromasa Yonebayashi. The movie will be titled Karigurashi no Arrietty (aka Arrietty Borrows Everything). Toho will release the film summer 2010 in Japan, with a US release (home video?) via Disney to follow. For more information, check out the mini interview with studio head Toshio Suzuki at the Ghibli World blog.
