Japanese filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki has a new film, adapted from Hans Christian Anderson's The Little Mermaid, coming out in the United States this Summer. 

To give you some perspective /Film says Miyazaki is the Japanese equivalent of Walt Disney and Steven Spielberg combined. Both Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away won Picture of the Year at the Japanese Academy Awards and Spirited Away won the 2003 Oscar for Best Animated Feature.

Cate Blanchett, Tina Fey, Matt Damon and Liam Neeson are among the English voices that will dub over the Japanese film.
