Ghibli’s animated feature When Marnie Was There will open in U.S. cinemas. The initial release will be limited to New York and Los Angeles, but GKids will expand the screening in the following weeks. The anime as such releases an English-dubbed trailer for us to sink our teeth into.
Sent from her foster home in the city one summer to a sleepy town by the sea in Hokkaido, Anna dreams her days away among the marshes. She believes she’s outside the invisible magic circle to which most people belong – and shuts herself off from everyone around her, wearing her “ordinary face”. Anna never expected to meet a friend like Marnie, who does not judge Anna for being just what she is. But no sooner has Anna learned the loveliness of friendship than she begins to wonder about her newfound friend…
