Oh wait, the 2nd trailer is even better!
I love how he's kicking it olde School and hand-drawing this one, there's no CG in this one.
:nerd: :love:

I wondered why the animation was sort of old and new at the same time -- thought it might just be imitation of the more hand drawn style, but this is cooler.

One of the reasons I love his work so is that he is a traditionalist for the most part. Only "Spirited Away" and "Howls Moving Castle" have any CG in them and it was mostly because he was persuded into usuing it. When given his own way he does it all by hand (or well, his wife and team of other artists draw a lot too). That and the fact his stories are almost all with a strong female lead makes him a beloved fav of mine. So glad tonight is movie-night Biggrin

It is made of cute! The lead characters are five-year olds and he captures the essence of little kid so perfectly(there's a scene with the fish-princess getting human-food and first is all "hot hot!" then later she's falling asleep in her bowl-so cute!)

My cousin is five! I have to see this with her!

she'll love it, especially if she's a redhead. It's kinda like a "Little Mermaid" story with an eviromentalist theme.
