Welcome to a world where anything is possible! Oscar-winning director Hayao Miyazaki and legendary filmmaker John Lasseter together with Disney bring to life a heartwarming and imaginative telling of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairy tale The Little Mermaid. A young boy named Sosuke rescues a goldfish named Ponyo, and they embark on a fantastic journey of friendship and discovery before Ponyo’s father, a powerful sorcerer, forces her to return to her home in the sea. But Ponyo’s desire to be human upsets the delicate balance of nature and triggers a gigantic storm. Only Ponyo’s mother, a beautiful sea goddess, can restore nature’s balance and make Ponyo’s dreams come true. Ponyo will delight your family with its magnificent animation and timeless story.
This Fall, in partnership with The State Theatre, CJS celebrates some of the greatest and most influential films of all time from the legendary Japanese animation team at Studio Ghibli.
