GKids, Gets Marnie as the Last Films of Ghibi come state side:


Animation distributor GKIDS has announced that it has entered into a distribution agreement with Studio Ghibli for the North American rights to the upcoming animated feature When Marnie Was There (Omoide no Marnie). Directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi (The Secret World of Arrietty) and based on the British children’s novel by Joan G. Robinson, the film tells the story of a troubled young girl, Anna, who finds herself drawn to the abandoned Marsh House and a mysterious girl Marnie who appears in the window.

The deal was negotiated by Eric Beckman from GKIDS and Geoffrey Wexler from Studio Ghibli, with GKIDS taking all theatrical, non-theatrical, home video and television rights in North America. An English language version is being produced by Studio Ghibli and Geoffrey Wexler. The film is slated for a spring 2015 theatrical release and awards submissions.

There is one movie left (possibly two) left in the Ghibi run. Its a scary time in animation…
