FILM SYNOPSIS:


Residing quietly beneath the floorboards are little people who live undetected in a secret world to be discovered. 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 occasionalcovert 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. From the legendary Studio Ghibli (“Spirited Away,” “Ponyo”) comes “The Secret World of Arrietty,” an animated adventure based on Mary Norton’s acclaimed children’s book series “The Borrowers.”


 


The film was directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi and produced by Toshio Suzuki. Gary Rydstrom directed the English-language version of “The Secret World of Arrietty” from a screenplay written by Karey Kirkpatrick. The producers include Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall. The original Japanese screenplay was written by Hayao Miyazaki and Keiko Niwa.

Does it have the original Japanese voice track and English subs?
"You bring a horse for me?" "Looks like......looks like we're shy of one horse." "No.......You brought two too many."

Heya Edwin!   Funny...just as I received notification of this question, an additional email arrived from the studio with extended specs information.   You will find it in the original post and it should answer  your question.

Outstanding. Thanks. I think the only Ghibli film that made into the theater in my neck of the woods was Spirited Away. I'm looking forward to seeing this one.

I am all over this. I'm a huge Ghibli fan, and I saw this twice on opening weekend. It's no Princess Mononoke or Spirited Away, but it's very good. Too bad Disney plastered that hideous song over the end credits.... but hey, that's what the Japanese track is for. :D
