One day little Sosuke is playing by the seashore when he finds a fish trapped in a jar. Except, Ponyo isn't just an ordinary fish. In fact, soon she isn't a fish at all, having turned herself into a little girl. Sosuke is happy because he has someone to play with, but there are suddenly great storms at sea that seem in some way to be connected to Ponyo's transformation. Made by the great Japanese director Hayao Miyazaki, who is behind such classics as Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle - Ponyo is a magical and touching animated adventure that will prove entrancing to younger audiences.

Fascinating Facts

Despite having a huge team of highly skilled artists working on the film, Hayao Miyzaki did some of the drawings of the sea himself.

    Ponyo is a weird fish, pepe the frog looking man, child girl thing. She likes this boy named Soskue who is a random kid who's mum we thought was dead because she disappeared from the fim but there not oh and the film was awful because the anime was quite primitive so I did not like watching it.
