First Trailer for Studio Ponoc's 'Modest Heroes' Short Film Anthology

Modest Heroes Trailer

“You’ll be carried away by these modest heroes.” Oh my goodness!! Studio Ponoc, the animation studio in Japan that is essentially the spiritual successor to Studio Ghibli, has released the first official trailer for an animated anthology of short films. These short films will be released in Japan this August, their next offering since making Mary and the Witch’s Flower (which just opened in the US earlier this year and is available now on iTunes). This new series is titled “Ponoc Short Films Theatre”, and this first set of three shorts is titled Modest Heroes. Ponoc recruited three of Ghibli’s finest veteran animators to make these three short films – Kanini & Kanino directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi, Life Ain’t Gonna Lose (aka Samurai Egg) directed by Yoshiyuki Momose, and Invisible directed by Akihiko Yamashita. In addition, Japan’s Kaela Kimura performs the Modest Heroes theme song, which plays at the end of the anthology feature. Ahhh! This looks amazing, I love everything about it, and I can’t wait to see these shorts for myself. ›››
