Studio Ghibli’s ‘When Marnie Was There’ in USA cinemas from May 22


When Marnie Was There is an exquisite new film by director Hiromasa Yonebayashi.

The English language dub arguably packs even more emotional weight with the voice talent of Oscar nominated Hailee Steinfeld in the lead role of Anna, and Madmen’s Kiernan Shipka playing the mysterious Marnie. Also featuring Kathy Bates, John C. Reilly, Vanessa Williams, Catherine O’Hara and Ellen Burstyn.

The adaptation stays as faithful to the original Japanese without ever (I hope) sounding forced. Every line needed to flow, feel appropriate to character, and oh yeah… still fit lip-synch. I feel very honoured to have worked on it. Big thanks to all at Studio Ghibli.
