Latest Miyazaki film to get 800 U.S. screens

8 06 2009

JG PonyoDisney has announced that the latest film from director Hayao Miyazaki, Ponyo, will be shown in 800 screens for its U.S. theatrical release. It will be the largest ever U.S. release for a Miyazaki film.

Ponyo’s story sounds strikingly similar to Disney’ The Little Mermaid: A young mermaid/fish decides she wants to be human, casting aside her home and washing up on the shore where she is rescued by a young boy named Sosuke.
