“Karigurashi no Arrietty” is an adaptation of Mary Norton’s The Borrowers (Yukashita no Kobito-tachi) fantasy novel. Studio Ghibli co-founder Hayao Miyazaki has been planning the film since July of 2008, but as previously revealed by producer Toshio Suzuki, Miyazaki is not directing the next film. 36-year-old animator Hiromasa Yonebayashi is making his directorial debut with this project.

Shida plays the lead as Arrietty, one of the borrowers, while Kamiki plays Sho, the human boy who discovers Arrietty. The pair previously worked together in the 2007 drama series “Tantei Gakuen Q.”

“Karigurashi no Arrietty” will open in Japanese theaters on July 17, 2010.
