Miyazaki’s “Ponyo” in US Theatres August 14, 2009

24 Mar

Doing anything August 14, 2009? Well, if you’re in the US you could do worse than to go Ponyo, the latest Hayao Miyazaki film, just announced for release in US theatres that day, distributed by Walt Disney Pictures.

If you’ve read much about John Lassiter, you probably know already that Miyazaki has been a huge influence on him. And if you’ve watched a single Miyazaki film, you know the animation is stunning, the storytelling superb, and the cultural references often a tad confusing for American audiences (I had to watch Spirited Away a couple times before the Shinto really started to sink in).

Hat tip: Blue Sky Disney.
