Big stars announced for new Ghibli film

Ponyo On The Cliff By The Sea will be the latest anime film from celebrated director Hayao Mayazaki (the master behind Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away). The voice cast for the English version has been announced and it contains some big ol' names: Matt Damon, Tina Fey, Cate Blanchett, Liam Neeson and Golden Girl Betty White are all on the list.

The anime movie, about a boy who befriends a mermaid/fish-princess called Ponyo, has been out in Japan for a while, but is due for release in the UK next April, produced by Kathleen Kennedy (War of the Worlds, Indiana Jones) and Frank Marshall (Indiana Jones, Back to the Future).
