About Ponyo

'Ponyo' is a heartwarming and visually stunning animated film that tells the story of a young boy named Sosuke and his unlikely friendship with a magical goldfish named Ponyo. The movie is set in a small seaside village in Japan, where Sosuke lives with his mother on a clifftop overlooking the sea. One day, while exploring the rocky shore, Sosuke comes across Ponyo, who has escaped from the ocean and become stranded on land.

Yuria Kozuki brings Ponyo to life with her energetic and curious voice, perfectly capturing the character's playful and mischievous personality. Hiroki Doi, who voices Sosuke, delivers a nuanced and believable performance as a young boy who is both fascinated and slightly overwhelmed by the magical creature he has discovered. The chemistry between the two voice actors is palpable, and it's a joy to watch their relationship develop throughout the film.

However, Ponyo's father, a powerful sorcerer named Fujimoto, has other plans. Determined to keep his daughter safe and prevent her from becoming human, Fujimoto schemes to return Ponyo to the sea. As Ponyo's yearning to become human grows stronger, she and Sosuke must navigate the challenges and dangers that arise from their friendship, and learn to appreciate the beauty and magic of the natural world. With its stunning animation, memorable characters, and timeless themes, 'Ponyo' is a must-watch for fans of all ages.
