Anna hasn't a friend in the world - until she meets Marnie among the sand dunes. But Marnie isn't all she seems...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 recognises - 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...

Secret World of Arrietty director Hiromasa Yonebayashi will again be helming a Studio Ghibli adaptation of a British children's novel with the revered animation house producing an anime movie based on Joan G. Robinson's When Marnie Was There. This is the first Ghibli movie made without the direct involvement of co-founders Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata, but, talking to The Asahi Shimbun, producer Yoshiaki Nishimura says that like past Ghibli works, production is down to the wire against its July 19th release.

Despite the brush with a deadline, a preview has aired...
