caption this! image from ‘Ponyo’

Fun for Wednesdays! We look at an image from an upcoming movie and write snarky, witty, or otherwise entertaining captions for it. No prizes, it’s just for fun.

Ponyo, from the Academy Award-winning director and world-renowned Japanese animation legend Hayao Miyazaki, is inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale “The Little Mermaid.”

Here’s a peek:

Walt Disney Pictures tells us that the film is:

already a box-office success in Japan, [and] the story of a young and overeager goldfish named Ponyo (voiced by NOAH CYRUS) and her quest to become human features an outstanding roster of voice talent, including CATE BLANCHETT, MATT DAMON, TINA FEY, FRANKIE JONAS, CLORIS LEACHMAN, LIAM NEESON, LILY TOMLIN and BETTY WHITE.

I’m not sure why they’re shouting at us, but it’s pretty standard PR speak to do so.

Ponyo will open in the U.S. on August 14, and in the U.K. on February 5, 2010.

Visit the film’s IMDB page for more info.

    Far too late, Ponyo realized mermaids lack the proper bone structure and chemistry to achieve the results he had seen on the Bonsai Kitten site.

    For the record, Ponyo is the character in the jar. The kid’s name is Sosuke.
