Here is Studio Ghibli's teaser trailer for The Borrowers. This really looks magnificent - Kazuo Oga's impressionist paintings are always a wonderful sight. Very interesting that this movie returns to the "classic" Ghibli style, and not Ponyo's storybook watercolor approach. Perhaps that newer style will be more exclusive to Miyazaki's films? It's a great testament to these skilled artists that Studio Ghibli can showcase so many different artistic styles.
Obviously, I would love to see The Borrowers in American theatres this year or next. That's probably unlikely, but everything should depend on Disney's internal expectations for Ponyo's US theatrical run, as well as next month's DVD/BD releases. Sounds like a good incentive to buy multiple copies of the new DVDs, hmm?
