I saw on Monday that Entertainment Weekly mentions Ponyo in their summer movie roundup. I don't have time for a direct link, but you can check it out for yourselves. It's a short paragraph for the upcoming Ghibli movie, and also includes John Lasseter's latest cheerful pleas for its success in the US. Let's hope this time the Disney suits finally agree with him, and help make Ponyo a hit.
Keep your fingers crossed.
