Ponyo, Wed. 11/13, 7:30 PM

Nov 13th • 7:30 pm • Regency South Coast Village

Regency South Coast Village’s Classic Film Wednesdays usually showcase the usual suspects. (Think Casablanca, The Godfather and, yes, The Usual Suspects.) But programmers at times think outside the theater box and choose a title like Academy Award-winning anime master and Studio Ghibli co-founder Hayao Miyazaki’s Ponyo. It’s the story of 5-year-old Sosuke, who finds a goldfish trapped in a container on the beach, names her Ponyo and keeps her as a pet. Ponyo then turns into a little girl withimpressive powers because, unbeknownst to Sosuke, she is the daughter of a mysterious aquatic wizard. Beautifully drawn and executed, Ponyo was adapted from Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale The Little Mermaid, which explains why Disney distributed it in more U.S. theaters than any previous anime, one year after it’s 2008 premiere in Japan.
