For animation geeks, it's hard not to get excited whenever a new Studio Ghibli film is on its way.  Here is the U.S., that film is "The Tale of Princess Kaguya," which GKIDS plans to release in an English dub this fall, but in Japan, the next Ghibli is due in theaters this month, and it looks like a real beauty.

"When Marnie Was There" is is adapted from the book by Joan Robinson, and tells the story of a young, lonely girl who makes a new friend in Marnie--who very well may be a ghost.  Robinson's book is on the list of Hayao Miyazaki's favorite 50 children's books, so it's not surprising that it's getting the Ghibli treatment.

"Marnie" is directed by Yonebayashi Hiromasa, who helmed Studio Ghibli's "The Secret World of Arrietty."  Niwa Keiko ("From Up on Poppy Hill") and Ando Masahi (a character designer on "Spirited Away" and "Princess Mononoke") wrote the screenplay.

Check out the new trailer for "When Marnie Was There" below.

    Hey, GKIDS, don't forget a few subtitled DCPs for those of us who prefer to hear the original voices.
