Project:  Mai Mai Miracle

Creator:  All the Anime

Description:  Hopefully the phrase "protege of Hayao Miyazaki" is sufficient for fans of family-friendly movies, but just watch what is essentially a trailer for director Sunao Katabuchi's Mai Mai Miracle and hopefully that will convince you that this would be a worthy movie to see in the English-language part of the world.

The movie itself won a number of awards upon its release in 2009 but hasn't yet been released in the UK or the United States.  This Kickstarter will raise the funds to produce English subtitles, and assuming they reach their stretch goal of $60,000 (very likely given their success in just 48 hours), a dubbed version of the movie.  Definitely looks promising.
