Studio Ghibli’s From Up on Poppy Hill is getting a US release next year, with ComingSoon.net revealing the cast for the English dub. Actors include Jamie Lee Curtis, Ron Howard, Gillian Anderson, Sarah Bolger and Beau Bridges, among others. Unlike most of Studio Ghibli’s films, From Up on Poppy Hill is not a fantasy, instead focusing on Japan recovering from the horrific aftermath of World War II and preparing to host the Olympic games. Perhaps because of the more serious subject matter, Disney is not set the distribute the film, with those rights instead going to GKIDS. The film is expected to hit US theaters in March.
