The Borrower Arrietty dated for February 17th, 2012

10:45 PM on 01.26.2011 // Ben Huber

When I first saw this story, I was happy. Finally, a date for Arrietty in the US! Then I saw the year.


We'll have to wait a full year until we get our Will Arnett and Amy Poehler dub in theaters, on February 17th, 2012. Color me disappointed. The delay from Ponyo's Japanese release to its American one was one year. I had been hoping for an August release, just like the past two Ghibli films. Why the extra time here? Probably just Disney padding out its release schedule as it pleases (and the Deadline report seems to indicate as much).

This is especially saddening to me considering the film is already out in theaters in France. Here I was hoping we'd get a summer release, but alas, it is not to be (unless Disney decides to meddle with their schedule again and move it up... oh, if only). So, who's ready for this long, agonizing wait?

I've included a trailer for it after the jump, but it won't make the hurting go away.
