VIZ Media, LLC, a premier company in the fields of publishing, animation distribution, and global entertainment licensing, expands its renowned Studio Ghibli library with the release of a new hardcover edition of The Art of THE SECRET WORLD OF ARRIETTY on March 6th.
The vividly illustrated art book will be released exclusively in print with an MSRP of $34.99 U.S. / $46.99 CAN. It features story notes, commentary, and artwork from THE SECRET WORLD OF ARRIETTY (借りぐらしのアリエッティ, Karigurashi no Arrietty). Based on the classic novel by Mary Norton, the 2010 film was directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi, the youngest director to ever helm a film for Studio Ghibli. The studio’s founder, Hayao Miyazaki, also supervised the production of ARRIETTY as a developing planner. Yonebayashi has gone on to direct WHEN MARNIE WAS THERE (思い出のマーニー, Omoide no Maanii, 2014) and Studio Ponoc’s first feature film, MARY AND THE WITCH’S FLOWER (メアリと魔女の花, Meari to Majo no Hana, 2017).
