Anne Thompson points us to this new trailer from Studio Ghibli. Says Anne:

“When Marnie Was There” is is adapted from the book by Joan Robinson, and tells the story of a young, lonely girl who makes a new friend in Marnie–who very well may be a ghost. Robinson’s book is on the list of Hayao Miyazaki’s favorite 50 children’s books, so it’s not surprising that it’s getting the Ghibli treatment.

“Marnie” is directed by Yonebayashi Hiromasa, who helmed Studio Ghibli’s “The Secret World of Arrietty.” Niwa Keiko (“From Up on Poppy Hill”) and Ando Masahi (a character designer on “Spirited Away” and “Princess Mononoke”) wrote the screenplay.
