With the big announcement still on my mind, I started searching for one of my all time favorite Disney animated movies, and discovered this piece by Lois van Baarle.
In order to hype the upcoming U.S. release of the Miyazaki film Ponyo, the renowned filmmaker is heading to the San Diego Comic-Con. The loose adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Mermaid” — about an enchanting female goldfish who wants to become a human — has been receiving a lot of attention. For the first time in his career, Miyazaki will be appearing at Comic-Con in San Diego in July showing clips from “Ponyo,” which has made $182.1 million internationally. This is the first time Miyazaki has appeared at the convention. via LA Times
