Ponyo trailer

06.23.2009

As a fan of animation, I'm excited to see PONYO (the Disneyfied release of Hayao Miyazaki's GAKE NO UE NO PONYO) but I don't think this trailer is doing the film any favors. There's the overly dramatic voiceover and the lack of any coherent plot thread. If you had no idea what this movie was about, would this trailer help you at all? I guess they're just relying on cartoon nerds like me who just want to see a Miyazaki movie in theaters. You can check it out for yourself below or watch it in HD at Apple's trailer page. PONYO opens in limited release on August 14.

Thought the trailer was incredible. When was the last time you saw a trailer that actually explained the plot to a movie? I get the basic gist. Fish girl, water, etc...but the visuals are what sold me.

Trailer tells me nothing...but it'd be great to watch under the influence.

Title Change???

Wasn't the original title "Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea"? What a beautiful title! Did Disney think Americans would only respond to a one word title? This trend is costing some films a lot of dignity...

I'm excited nevertheless, as Miyazaki is a genius.

Mike, I normally like your style man but lighten up a wee bit. This looks awesome, I don't think there is an animator alive who can make me feel like a kid again as much as this guy. Colour me excited.

Mike hit me up i'll get u some pun from the street to lighten up. Oh and it sucks that it got placed on a limited release when 80 other movies coming out on the same day.

Mike needs to go out more....

The trailer looks good the movie will obviously be good and just hope Disney didn't brutality re-edited the movie to the point that it sucks.

Who cares if they can't summarize the plot in a trailer? Spirited Away is one of the great movies of all time, but you couldn't even begin to get more than a pinch of the overall magic if you tried to summarize it in two minutes.

This looks incredible.
