Ponyo’s English Cast Announced

According to the high respected, Ghibili World fansite, the latest film from Miyazaki Hayao: Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea is going to have a fairly famous English dub. The cast will include such names as Matt Damon, Tina Fey, Cate Blanchett, Liam Neeson, Lily Tomlin, Betty White, Fankie Jonas, Noah Cyrys and Cloris Leachman.

Test screenings are being held across the USA; however, it’s unlikely that we will see this in out in the west before late 2009, and even later than that in the UK.

It’s likely that Ponyo will make a UK cinema d├ębut, as Howl’s Moving Castle was fairly popular and in most major cinemas. With a fairly famous cast, this will gain the attention from many mainstream cinema goers – which automatically should increase circulation of this film.
