Disney Gives "Arrietty" Anime Film Its Biggest Ghibli Release

1,200-screen run planned for February 17th, 2012

Disney distributed the Oscar winning Hayao Miyazaki/Studio Ghibli film Spirited Away on 750 screens. Ponyo topped that with 900. For the new Hiromasa Yonebayashi-directed The Secret World of Arrietty, Disney will be upping the count again.

 

Up by a third, Arrietty will be shown on 1,200 screens starting February 17th, 2012.

 

Pixar honcho and Ghibli advocate John Lasseter said, I just want to do every­thing I can to help make sure peo­ple can go see them because they’re just mag­nif­i­cent films that are very dif­fer­ent than any other ani­mated films these days."
