PonyoPonyo might not be a name that you’ve seen or heard before but when you get a chance, check out the trailer below and I think it will capture your imagination as it has mine.

The movie comes from Oscar winning director, Hayao Miyazaki (Spirited Away) and from the looks of this trailer, I think we can expect good things from Ponyo too. It’s released in cinemas February 12th 2010.

From Academy Award-winning director Hayao Miyazaki (Spirited Away) and featuring an incredible voice cast, including Cate Blanchett, Liam Neeson, Matt Damon, Tina Fey, Frankie Jonas and Noah Cyrus, Ponyo is a magical adventure the whole family won’t want to miss.

Ponyo is a mischievous and adventurous little goldfish who drifts away from the undersea home she shares with her wizard father and little sisters. Far from her home, she meets Sosuke, a five-year-old boy who lives by the sea with his mother Lisa.

Sosuke gently cares for Ponyo and quickly wins her heart. Ponyo’s father, desperate for his daughter to return to their undersea home, uses his magic to bring her back, much to Ponyo’s dismay. The stubborn Ponyo longs to return to her special friend. Magically transforming herself into a little girl, she finds her way back to Sosuke’s house, where she and her friend embark on a series of adventures. But Ponyo’s desire to be human upsets the delicate balance of nature and triggers a gigantic storm. Only Ponyo’s mother, a beautiful sea goddess, can restore nature’s balance – and perhaps make Ponyo’s dreams come true.
