Studio Ghibli fans, take note – the first film without studio co-founders Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata is on the horizon. Like The Secret World of Arrietty, When Marnie Was There is also based on a popular English novel, and coincidentally, is also directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi.
Here’s a peek at the trailer:
The music in this trailer is reminiscent of the Cecile Corbel soundtrack of Arrietty, which boasted dreamy, lush landscapes and invoked the heavy air of summer. Do you think with this first offering from a new Ghibli the student will finally surpass the master?
