If you’re a fan of Anime classics like Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle or Princess Mononoke, then you will definitely want to check out The Secret World of Arrietty. The animated film from Disney, features the voices of Bridgit Mendler, Amy Poehler, Carol Burnett, Will Arnett, David Henrie, and Moises Arias.
The premise of the story (little people who live beneath the floorboards) reminds me of the 80s cartoon The Littl’ Bits mixed with a touch of An American Tail.
Speaking of Fievel Mousekewitz, in this latest clip from The Secret World of Arrietty, one of the little people is yanked up from her world by her tail – except she doesn’t have a tail since she’s not a mouse. You’ll see what I mean.

Residing quietly beneath the floorboards are little people who live undetected in a secret world to be discovered, where the smallest may stand tallest of all. From the legendary Studio Ghibli (“Spirited Away,” “Ponyo”) comes “The Secret World of Arrietty,” an animated adventure based on Mary Norton’s acclaimed children’s book series “The Borrowers.”
