It is based on Joan G. Robinson's children's novel of the same name that tells a story of a lonely foster child Anna who is sent to a seaside village in Norfolk for the summer, encounters a mysterious girl called 'Marnie.'

Though the original story is set in England, this anime film adaptation will be set in Japan.

Yonebayashi Hiromasa who made his directing debut with "Karigurashi no Arrietty ('The Borrower Arrietty' or 'The Secret World of Arrietty')", is in charge of the direction, and together with Yonebayashi, Niwa Keiko and Ando Masashi will co-write the script.

"Omoide no Marnie" is set for release in summer of 2014.

It's unfortunate to be set in Japan. I would love to see Ghibli drawing another country and another countries culture. Still I'm looking forward for it's premiere.
