Mori Movie Finds: The Secret World of Arrietty

Hello, my deers! I know I often say that I don't really watch many movies, but I still have a few more recommendations that I've been meaning to share for a while now. So, here is another one for you today!

Today's Mori Movie Find is The Secret World of Arrietty, a Studio Ghibli film. While Studio Ghibli is very well known for its films such as My Neighbor Totoro and Howl's Moving Castle (among many other amazing animated titles), I have found that most people are unaware of this little gem that the studio produced. The movie is based on a book series called The Littles by John Peterson. Growing up, I was a big fan of the tv series based off of these books and I watched almost every episode. So this movie had a bit of a nostalgia factor for me, and I was delighted to see this fantastical world come to life in a new and enchanting way.

The movie's plot is charming, and the scenery, as in any Studio Ghibli movie, is absolutely beautiful. I'd highly recommend it to anyone.

Have you seen The Secret World of Arrietty? If so, how did you like it? If not, I hope you enjoy it!

  1. I saw this movie soon after it came out, and I loved it! Everything about it was beautiful. There was also something quite moving about the Littles using human items, but for different purposes than what they were originally intended because they're the wrong size for them.
