Ghibli's Ghost Story When Marnie Was There Gets A Haunting Trailer

Miyazaki Hayao may have retired from filmmaking, but Studio Ghibli is still bringing us beautiful fare. The trailer for their upcoming supernatural story When Marnie Was There is packed with lovely landscapes and hints at the friendship at the heart of the film.


From Wikipedia, here is the synopsis for the film, directed by The Secret World of Arrietty's Hiromasa Yonebayashi and based on the book by Joan G. Robinson:

An atmospheric ghost story with truths to tell about friendship, families and loneliness. Anna lives with foster parents, a misfit with no friends, always on the outside of things. Then she is sent to Norfolk to stay with old Mr and Mrs Pegg, where she runs wild on the sand dunes and around the water. There is a house, the Marsh House, which she feels she recognizes - and she soon meets a strange little girl called Marnie, who becomes Anna's first ever friend. Then one day, Marnie vanishes.

A new family, the Lindsays, move into the Marsh House. Having learnt so much from Marnie about friendship, Anna makes firm friends with the Lindsays - and learns some strange truths about Marnie, who was not all she seemed...
