The Secret World of Arrietty (trailer)

Ah, sweet mystery of two nations divided by a common language. When this flick was released in the U.K. last summer, it was called simply Arrietty and sported a classy English-language voice cast including Mark Strong, Olivia Colman, Phyllida Law, Geraldine McEwan, and Saoirse Ronan as Arrietty. Yeah, Hanna herself.

But Disney moves the flick over the U.S., and suddenly there’s a Secret World of attached to the title, and an American voice cast that includes Amy Poehler, Will Arnett, and Carol Burnett. Oh, and some kid from Disney TV as Arrietty.

The film itself is only mediocre. But is it just me, or is the British trailer a lot more magical than the North American trailer is trying to be?

US/Canada release date: Feb 17 2012 | UK release date: Jul 29 2011
