Well, here's the announcement that us Hayao Miyazaki fans have been waiting for for a good long while now. Anime News Network has reported that Walt Disney Pictures will be releasing Mitazaki's latest animated triumph, "Ponyo on a Cliff by the Sea" in North American theatres on August 14th. Like previous Disney-released Miyazaki films "Ponyo" will feature English-dubbing by some of Hollywood's biggest stars. The Jonas Brothers' little brother Frankie Jonas will voice Sosuke, a boy who discovers a very special little goldfish named Ponyo (voiced by Noah Cyrus) who wants nothing more than to become human. The rest of the voice cast is rounded out by Cate Blanchett, Matt Damon, Tina Fey, Cloris Leachman, Liam Neeson, Lily Tomlin, and Betty White.
Sadly there isn't an American trailer for "Ponyo" yet, but to commemorate this announcement we present the original Japanese trailer to get you pumped for this release.
