Animation Breakdown is proud to make its 2012 debut with a special advance screening of The Secret World of Arrietty, the newest animated adventure from the legendary Studio Ghibli (Spirited Away, Ponyo) based on Mary Norton’s acclaimed children’s book series “The Borrowers.” Arrietty (voiced by Bridgit Mendler), a tiny, but tenacious 14-year-old, lives with her parents (voiced by Will Arnett and Amy Poehler) in the recesses of a suburban garden home, unbeknownst to the homeowner and her housekeeper (voiced by Carol Burnett). Like all little people, Arrietty remains hidden from view, except during occasional covert ventures beyond the floorboards to “borrow” scrap supplies like sugar cubes from her human hosts. But when 12-year-old Shawn (voiced by David Henrie), a human boy who comes to stay in the home, discovers his mysterious housemate one evening, a secret friendship blossoms. If discovered, their relationship could drive Arrietty’s family from the home and straight into danger. Don’t miss your chance to see this marvel of hand-drawn animation on the big screen before it hits theaters! Disney Presents a Studio Ghibli film, The Secret World of Arrietty, in theatres February 17th. Please note that date on the image above is for general release date. Our special advance screening will take place on Saturday, February 11th.
