We had a feeling that when rumors circulated a while ago that the youngest Cyrus sister and the youngest Jonas Brother were dating that there was something else there. Turns out that Miley Cyrus’ younger sister Noah Cyrus and the Bonus Jonas, Frankie Jonas, are working together on a new movie.
Have you seen the movies “Spirited Away” or “Howl’s Moving Castle?” They were directed by Hayao Miyazaki and had some really great reviews. Well, Hayao has decided to direct a new animated movie “Ponyo,” with Noah and Frankie lending their voices to the project. The movie was already released in Japan in 2008 and titled “Gake no ue no Ponyo,” but now it looks like they have re-done the voice-overs with American actors and are re-releasing it.
The storyline is about a goldfish named Ponyo who decides to leave her home under water and makes friends with a young boy who lives in a small coastal village.
The story was actually inspired from Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Mermaid,” the same place that Disney’s The Little Mermaid was inspired from.
In a recent interview Noah said, “I actually have a movie coming out call ‘Ponyo’. I play a goldfish in it, and I wanna be a human in it, and my best friend is a human, and I think that’s where I get it from, and then I turn into a human. The guy who plays my best friend in it is Frankie Jonas, the Jonas Brothers’ little brother.”
The film is set to be released on August 14th this year and includes some famous celebrity voices:
– Tina Fey
– Matt Damon
– Cloris Leachman
– Liam Neeson
– Cate Blanchett
– Lily Tomlin
– Betty White
