Ponyo is a Studio Ghibli film that was released on August 14, 2009. The movie takes place in a city that is supposed to be set in Japan. The main character is a 5 year old boy name Sosuke who lives on a quiet seaside cliff, with his mother Lisa. One day, while he was playing at the sea near his house, he discovers a unique looking fish, which he rescues. He brings the fish along with him to school, and names it Ponyo, which is an onomatopoeia for the touching of a soft, squishy object. Somewhere along the movie, Sosuke loses Ponyo back into the ocean, but she is actually captured by her father, who is a wizard that lives under the sea. While in captivity by her father, Ponyo escapes from her fishbowl and uses her father’s magic to transform herself into human. After doing so, she and her siblings escape their father’s lair, and pursue Sosuke so Ponyo can meet him again. Ponyo finally meets Sosuke, and the two fall in love, however, her father’s magic alters the universe and brings the moon closer to earth, submerging the land into water. Ponyo and Sosuke go on an adventure to find her mother, the Sea Goddess, and return the earth to it’s original form, and to keep Ponyo human.

 

I highly recommend watching this movie. Although its an old movie, you can always get the DVD (because its worth it I promise) or you can stream it online.
