Arietty the Borrower - first glimpse

Not long after Ponyo came out on DVD we find a new trailer for Studio Ghibli's next project. Adapted from Mary Norton's children book series The Borrowers, Arietty the Borrower is about tiny people and their relationship with the much larger human beings. Hiromasa Yonebayashi directs Arietty instead of Miyazaki, but as one can see from the trailer, the realistic detail Ghibli adds to all their work is still there.

I'm afraid this movie will always remind me of an '80s cartoon I was fond of... The Littles, no doubt influenced from the same source.
