The Art of Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea

The Art of Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

· The U.S. theatrical release of Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea is expected in April 2009. ·         Ponyo had over $100 million at the box office in Japan. With the population difference, this is equivalent to Batman The Dark Knight’s $400-$500 million at the box office in the U.S.

· The character of Ponyo – a goldfish who becomes a young girl – is very, very cute.

· Ponyo storyline is more familiar to Western audiences than previous Miyazaki films

· Ecological themes make the book very timely, especially for children.

· Ponyo will likely be more popular than prior Miyazaki films at the US box office; we can also expect DVD sales of more than 500,000 (Spirited Away did 400,000 after release).

· Ponyo film extremely likely to be nominated for Academy award for animated feature. (Backlist selling opportunity).
