Video of the Week: Miyazaki Latest US Release: Ponyo

It’s fitting that our first Video of the Week, my human picks a Hayao Miyazaki film.
She’s obsessed.
“Not true.  I happen to like-“
Sorry for interrupting you human, but, you are the one who’s added Totoro lunch accessories to your Amazon Wish List aren’t you? 
“Well, I need a lunch box.”
Why the chopsticks?  You can’t even eat with chopsticks!  (At least without injuring yourself.)
”They’re for my hair?”

Ponyo on a Cliff by the Sea (Gake no Ue no Ponyo) is Hayao Miyazaki’s latest animation.  The story loosely based on Han Christensen Andersons The Little Mermaid.  Ponyo, the main character is a goldfish who dreams of being human.

The English dub is being released in the US on August 14, 2009.
What to see it?  Check your local movie theater. 

Some of the vocal cast includes:
          Cate Blanchett, Betty White, Matt Damon, Lily Tomlin, Tina Fey,
          Noah Lindsey Cyrus, Liam Neeson, Frankie Jonas & Cloris Leachman

  1. Mmm, I am yet to watch this. I recently watched “The Cat Returns” (although it is not a Miyazaki film), which was cute, but more suited for a younger audience. My favourite Miyazaki films are definitely “Nausicaa” and “Princess Mononoke”.

    Have you seen any of the animated shorts and films by director Makoto Shinkai? Mostly depressing, but beautiful!

  2. Yes, I’m obsessed with Nausicaa myself and Princess Mononoke was his first work I had seen.
    The Cat Returns is a Studio Ghibli film and I think Miyazaki was a producer on it. It was very sweet, Ponyo too is more kid friendly but I heard and saw plenty adults laughing when I went.
