Karigurashi no Arietti (The Borrower Arrietty) Coming to US Theaters in 2012

Deadline.com has reported that Disney will release Hiromasa Yonebayashi and Studio Ghibli's Karigurashi no Arietti (The Borrower: Arrietty) film in North American theaters on February 17, 2012.

The movie originally opened in Japanese theaters last July with supervision by Ghibli co-founder Hayao Miyazaki. The English voice cast will include Bridgit Mendler, Amy Poehler, Will Arnett, David Henrie, and Carol Burnett.

Synopsis: Sho moves into his great aunt's house and soon discovers the presence of tiny people, the Borrowers, living there. A 14-year-old Borrower named Arrietty strives to prove herself by helping her father gather materials that her family needs from Sho's new home. However, Arrietty and Sho meet, breaking the rule that humans must not know about the Borrowers' existence. As Sho and Arrietty's relationship develops, human interference endangers the Borrowers' lives. Arrietty and Sho work together to try and protect the Borrowers' way of life.
