Walt Disney Pictures is set to release Japanese director Hayao Miyazaki’s latest animated film, Ponyo, on Aug. 14, the studio says. The movie, which follows a goldfish that longs to become human, has assembled an English voice cast that includes Cate Blanchett, Matt Damon, Tina Fey, Cloris Leachman, Liam Nesson, Lily Tomlin, Betty White, Frankie Jonas (the youngest Jonas brother), and Noah Cyrus (younger sister of Miley). The English-language version is being produced by John Lasseter, Kathleen Kennedy, and Frank Marshall, with a translated screenplay by Melissa Mathison (E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial). Ponyo was released in Japan last July and grossed $165 million.
