Perfect for audiences of all ages, and inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale "The Little Mermaid," Ponyo centers on the friendship between five-year-old Sosuke and a magical goldfish named Ponyo, the young daughter of a sorcerer father and a sea-goddess mother. After a chance encounter, Ponyo yearns to become a human so she can be with Sosuke. As to be expected with acclaimed animator Hayao Miyazaki, the film is awash in pure unbridled imagination and visual wonder—but it is the tender love, humor, and devotion exhibited by Ponyo and Sosuke that form the emotional heart of the film.
