From the various plot synopses I’ve dug up on the internet, the next Studio Ghibli movie When Marnie Was There seems to be a rather melancholy affair. It’s the story of two girls becoming friends, one of them… being a girl who lived in another time, I think it’s fair to say.
The first footage from the film is as beautiful as you’d expect. Haunting song too, no pun intended.
Thanks to Film Divider for somehow digging that clip out of the aether. The Japanese release, I understand, is set for July 19th. I bet we can expect to see it at festivals in the fall and then on general release in the US an UK at some time next spring or summer.
