"Ponyo" to get North American premiere at the New York International Children's Film Festival

by Chris MaGee

If you're a regular reader of the Pow-Wow blog you'll know that we're pretty damn excited about the North American release of Hayao Miyazaki's latest film "Ponyo on a Cliff by the Sea", re-titled "Ponyo" for audiences on this side of the pond. Here's hoping that the film which tells of a little boy's friendship with a goldfish who longs to be a human girl, will get released in a decent amount of theatres come August 12th.... especially a theatre near me!

Not everyone in North America will have to wait until August 12th to see "Ponyo" though. The New York International Children's Film Festival will be premiering Miyazaki's film on Sunday, August 9th at 3:00pm as part of this year's line-up. Am I jealous? Noooo.... I'm just turning a sickening shade of green, that's all. Thanks to Japanator for the heads up on this.
