“The Secret World of Arrietty” Hits U.S. Theaters Feb. 17th

Based on popular book series The Borrowers by Mary Norton, The Secret World of Arrietty is an animated adventure following a 14-year-old borrower, Arrietty, and the unlikely and even dangerous friendship she forms with an adolescent human, Shawn. Arrietty was created and first released by renowned Studio Ghibli (whose films Spirited Away and Ponyo have seen both critical and box office success) in Japan in 2010, quickly becoming the highest-grossing film at the box office that year, even going on to win the Animation of the Year Award. Now American audiences have the chance to witness this remarkable film firsthand when the English-language version from Walt Disney Animation Studios hits theaters nationwide on February 17.
