Studio Ghibli officially announced on Wednesday its latest animation feature titled ("Karigurashi no Arrietty" (Arrietty Borrows Everything)), which is based on Mary Norton's classic fantasy book "The Borrowers."

"Karigurashi no Arrietty" will be Hiromasa Yonebayashi's feature directorial debut. He was previously animation director and key animator on animation features such as "Ponyo," "Howl's Moving Castle," and "Spirited Away."

Adapted from Mary Norton's 1952 published, and award winning classic fantasy book, "The Borrowers" revolves around a family of "tiny people" of father Pod, mother Homily and their spirited thirteen year-old daughter, Arrietty. They live under the floorboards of a house, and survive through secretly "borrowing" of items from the normal humans who inhabit the house.

The animation movie is scheduled to be released on summer 2010.
