Ponyo- 10th anniversary

In 2008, anime director Hayao Miyazaki, was inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s story, ‘The Little Mermaid’. Which was why he made Studio Ghibli masterpiece, of a sea adventure to remember.

GKIDS was able to help Studio Ghibli on this movie, but his latest work didn’t make it in the Academy Awards for Best Animated Feature Film. Luckily for Hayao Miyazaki, he was very pleased that the fans loved it.

‘Ponyo’ tells the story of a goldfish, that ran away from her father, and became a real human. She befriended a boy on land, and his mom was amazed at how she is. By looking at Ponyo, she’s appears to be a very special goldfish. She had the hair, head and eyes of a human, with a few fins, and no sign of gills. By the time she was a human girl, she became a very energetic, and curious girl who was never afraid of anything. She only transforms back to becoming a goldfish, by the time she needs water. Which was why her friend stayed by her side.

With the voice talents of Tina Fey, Matt Damon, Liam Neeson, Cloris Leachman, Frankie Jonas, Cate Blanchett, and Noah Cyrus, GKIDS has chosen this cast very wisely.

10 years later in 2018, came the 10th anniversary of that anime masterpiece. So in honor of it’s 10th anniversary to ‘Ponyo’, GKIDS and Fathom Events together, have had that and eight more Studio Ghibli movies to be premiered in select cinemas. For only a 3-day event at the end of March of 2018.

So I wish that movie a happy 10th anniversary to remember, and how this really beats those fairytales by Hans Christian Anderson.
