I don't know if your aware of this, but the movie Ponyo: The Cliff by the Sea, by Hayao Miyazaki is coming out in theaters on August 14,2009! A group of my friends and I are going to see it and I am SO excited! Miyazaki is my role model, so I am very, very, VERY happy!!! Miyazaki is the master mind behind the animes Kiki's Delivery Service, Totoro, Nausica: Valley of the Wind, Laputa: Castle in the Sky, Princess Mononoke, Popo Roco, Whisper of the Heart, The Cat Returns, Howl's Moving Castle, and many more. Ponyo, as I hear it, is a take on The Little Mermaid, exceped that Ariel got changed to gold fish form and is found by a boy named Sosuke, who names her Ponyo, and then she wills herself into human form. This makes the whole sea rebel, and several extinct species of sea life come back to life.
Here's a link to the preview
I hope you will go and see it, will enjoy Miyazaki's work like I have.
