Ponyo Trailer & Art Book Impression

Legendary. This one word describes not only Hayao Miyazaki but his body of work with Studio Ghibli. In his latest movie, Ponyo, Miyazaki puts a different spin on the tale of The Little Mermaid. The tale of a fish who wishes to be with a little boy who was so kind to her looks as innocent as any Miyazaki tale. From the trailer the animation is so sharp and crisp one has to wonder why computer animation is so popular. This is the pinnacle of animation that will no doubt pull on any viewers heart strings ... and this is just how the trailer hits me. I've also been fortunate enough to get the official Viz Ponya art book which shows original concept art and really details how the film came to be. As an anime fan this is a must see and a must own once it hits on Blu-ray, but if you consider yourself a fan of film, of Oscar worthy pictures then Ponyo will be on your must see list. Check out the trailer then count the days till the films release.
