Update on Karigurashi no Arrietty

Karigurashi no Arrietty Studio Ghibli. I posted a teaser trailer of this film few moons ago. You can watch it here. Here is a new update on the film;

It was revealed that Mirai Shida(pictured above), a 16 years old actress will be the lead voice in this film. Shida plays the lead as Arrietty. This will be her first voice acting role.

This film s slated for a July 17, 2010 release in Japan and will mark the directorial debut of Studio Ghibli animator Hiromasa Yonebayashi, who will be the youngest person to direct a film for Ghibli. Ghibli founder Hayao Miyazaki will be supervising the production as a developing planner.

The original, Carnegie Medal-winning 1952 novel revolves around the “little people” — 10 centimeters (about 4 inches) tall — who live underneath the floorboards of an English country house. (The Japanese title literally means “the little people under the floor.”) 14-year-old Arrietty and the rest of the Clock family live in peaceful anonymity as they make their own home from items “borrowed” from the house’s human inhabitants. However, life changes for the Clocks when a human boy discovers Arrietty.
