Studio Ghibli’s ‘The Secret World of Arrietty’ Trailer and Release Date

Disney has released a new trailer for Studio Ghibli’s The Secret World of Arrietty. It’s being directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi and will mark his debut as a director. He’s also the youngest director for a Studio Ghibli film.

Arrietty (voice of Bridgit Mendler), a tiny, but tenacious 14-year-old, lives with her parents (voices of Will Arnett and Amy Poehler) in the recesses of a suburban garden home, unbeknownst to the homeowner and her housekeeper (voice of Carol Burnett). Like all little people, Arrietty (AIR-ee-ett-ee) remains hidden from view, except during occasional covert ventures beyond the floorboards to “borrow” scrap supplies like sugar cubes from her human hosts. But when 12-year-old Shawn (voice of David Henrie), a human boy who comes to stay in the home, discovers his mysterious housemate one evening, a secret friendship blossoms. If discovered, their relationship could drive Arrietty’s family from the home and straight into danger.

The Secret World of Arrietty will open in theaters on February 17th, 2012.
