News: The secret world of Arrietty

Greetings, folks! We are just dropping by today to let you know that the English dub trailer for “The secret world of Arrietty” made its way onto Youtube a while ago. The American release is nigh, people!

A little note here

Today’s article was supposed to be about “Dubs vs Subs” but seeing this trailer (on which we planned to make an article way earlier) made me think that it was best to bring it up now, why? Because the trailer itself is a great example of a dubbing job done properly and it serves to point out that many times the difference between languages can be ironed out with good work. And besides, we better do it now before it gets too old.

Now that I said that, let’s get on with the article shall we?

The borrowers

Released in Japan back in July 17, 2010 under the name of “The Borrower Arrietty,” the film deals with a family of “borrowers” (those little fairy like people who steal stuff from you to survive and live inside your walls, etc) and the way they interact with the human world. To be more specific it follows a little borrower by the name of Arrietty who is spotted by a human and finds that she is as fascinated by us as we are by them.

The premise itself is rather original and the movie seems to be fantastic, as it broke the audience record set by Ponyo (another amazing Ghibli film) and also managed to get many great reviews, but could we expect less from something with such a great pedigree?

The actual release

Here is the sad bit, the movie has seen the light of day in Europe (France and the United Kingdom, respectively) but it’s only making the jump across the pond next year on February 17, 2012, so do your best not to spoil it if you feel like enjoying a nice dub for once. Or hey, watch it twice and compare for yourself!
