Karigurashi no Arrietty Teaser Trailers Sneak Online

Posted on: February 8, 2010

The first, brief hints of Studio Ghibli’s next movie, Karigurashi no Arrietty, based on the classic children’s book “The Borrowers,” have started showing up in the form of teaser trailers. The teaser shows very little other than some of the forest and house backgrounds, though Cecile Corbel’s “Arrietty’s Song” sounds wonderful. Follow the jump to hear a slightly longer sample of the strange marriage of a French musician, the Celtic harp, Japanese anime, and British children’s books.

“Arrietty’s Song” became available in December, but I hadn’t heard it until now – it’s beautiful, though it’s less catchy than the overplayed song from Ponyo. Check it out for yourself, though! The song starts at 2:19 if you’re not interested in watching a French girl subtitled in Japanese.

The movie comes out in Japan on July 17th, and even though I was disappointed in Ponyo, I’m looking forward to seeing how Studio Ghibli’s new blood does.
