When Marnie Was There, the latest (but hopefully not last) film by Studio Ghibli and director Hiromasa Yonebayashi, is about to hit the States courtesy GKids, who have just released the English dub trailer. Take a gander!
Marnie stars Hailee Steinfeld as Anna Sasaki and Kiernan Shipka as Marnie with backup from a star-studded cast including John C. Reilly, Vanessa Williams, Geena Davis, Kathy Bates, Ellen Burstyn and Catherine O’Hara.
The film will open May 22 in New York and Los Angeles and expand from there.
Marnie, which earned disappointing box office results in Japan and was likely part of the reason for Yonebayashi’s departure from the studio, nonetheless received positive critical marks (including ours), so definitely check it out if you’re a Ghibli fan.
