Studio Ghibli has made a profound mark on the world of animation and are criminally under-appreciated here in the West, and as we’re always on the look out for our next Ghibli fix the brief Japanese teaser for Karigurashi no Arrietty, translated as The Borrower Arriety,  has arrived  and though it is a teaser in the strictest sense of the word, there’s enough gorgeous artwork to whet the appetite.

Mary Norton’s series of books about a tiny family secreted beneath the floorboards, and who borrow things, have been adapted before as live action pieces and while this teaser gives virtually nothing aware it looks like Yonebayashi Hiromasa’s directorial debut bares all the hallmarks of the famous studio.

Have a look below, the film is due for a Summer 2010 release.

Thanks to Dark Horizons for the heads-up.
