Hayao Miyazaki's Ponyo Looks Awesome and Adorable

The new English-language trailer for Hayao Miyazaki's upcoming animated feat Ponyo (or Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea) is absolutely adorable and features a star-studded cast (Matt Damon, Liam Neeson, Tina Fey, Cate Blanchett, Betty White, and more) voicing the characters. The story follows "a 5-year-old boy and his relationship with a goldfish princess who longs to become human." The movie opens in the US on Aug. 14.

Disney is distributing the Japanese anime production, which has received a G rating, the first G rating for a Miyazaki movie since 1988. Apparently, "Miyazaki was intimately involved with the hand-drawn animation in Ponyo. . . . This level of detailed drawing resulted in an astonishing 170,000 separate images — a record for a Miyazaki film."

The trailer really is a treat to watch, so to check it out
