'The Secret World of Arrietty': Will Japan's Pixar Have Its Big US ...
The Atlantic - Feb 17, 2012

The beloved studio behind Spirited Away and My Neighbor Totoro makes its most ambitious play for American audiences yet with this gentle, well-made adaptation of The Borrowers.
As the projectors warm up in U.S. theaters today, 1300 of them are being prepped to pass the latest animated release from Japanese animation powerhouse Studio Ghibli through their lenses. While that's fewer than half the number of screens that will host each of this week's other two wide releases (Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance and This Means War), it's a significant number: Disney, the company responsible for distributing Ghibli releases in the United States, has never opened one of the Studio Ghibli's films on nearly as many screens.

Tiny spirits hit big screen in 'Arrietty'
Chicago Sun-Times - Feb 15, 2012

A spirited heroine and an enchantingly beautiful setting make a story of friendship and courage beguiling in “The Secret of Arrietty,” Studio Ghibli’s adaptation of Mary Norton’s popular Borrowers books. First published in the mid-1950s, they’re based on a fanciful but entirely plausible explanation for the disappearance of small household items.

'Borrowers' tale 'Arrietty' has warm charm

Considering the eccentric, almost psychedelic fantasy worlds created in Japanese animation master Hayao Miyazaki’s tales, a story of tiny people living beneath the floorboards of a house seems almost normal.
“The Secret World of Arrietty,” from Miyazaki’s Studio Ghibli, also is a pleasant antidote to the siege mentality of so many Hollywood cartoons, whose makers aim to occupy every instant of the audience’s attention with an assault of noise and images. ...

Will Arnett on The Secret World of Arrietty
About.com - Feb 17, 2012

The Secret World of Arrietty hits theaters today! In celebration of the opening of one of the best children's/family films you have seen in a long time, here are some insights from Will Arnett, who voices Pod in the movie. Pod is Arrietty's father, and what's fun about the role, is that Will's wife Amy Poehler voices the role of Arrietty's mother, Homily.
Because Borrowers like Arrietty's family have to make all of their own things, Pod is an extremely talented craftsman. He is a sober man, but his calm disposition and thoughtful attitude serve to keep his family safe. ...

Review | The Secret World of Arrietty
Comic Book Resources - Feb 13, 2012

In the quiet Japanese countryside a boy stands outside an overgrown cottage. Sudden movement in the garden catches his eye, and he gasps as a mouse-sized girl darts down a plant stalk. In that moment, time freezes as both the boy and the audience realize they’ve caught a glimpse of something magical: the opening scenes of Studio Ghibli’s charming animated masterpiece The Secret World of Arrietty. ...
