When Marnie Was There - GKids Scores US Rights, Spring 2015 Release
GKids Films today announced that they have acquired the US distribution rights to Studio Ghibli's 2014 feature film, When Marnie Was There, directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi (Arrietty). The movie is currently planned for a Spring 2015 release, with the eventual migration to home video.
Here is one of the Japanese movie posters for Marnie. It's a terrific design a masterpiece of pop art, bold lines and vibrant color, as all the Studio Ghibli posters are. I still haven't seen this film, but I have watched the final trailer, and what I saw was sublime. I don't believe this will be the final Ghibli feature film, but if it was, then they're going out on a very high note.
I'm really looking forward to this one. Will this be your final chance to see a "new" Ghibli movie on the big screen? Better score your tickets ASAP for the last ride.
