Disney has teamed up with acclaimed director Hayao Miyazaki to create the film Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea. This film has been a big hit overseas. Upon its debut in Japan, the film made roughly $17 million.
While the critics also love Hayao Miyazaki's Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea, they couldn’t help but draw comparisons between this film and the Disney classic The Little Mermaid.
Overall, Hayao Miyazaki Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea is expected to be a hit in North America when it opens this summer.
