Hiyao Miyazaki is the man responsible for such animated classics as Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, and My Neighbor Totoro, so he's no stranger to making freakish creatures seem endearing. This summer, he'll continue that tradition as he asks us to fall in love with a weird little sea monkey of a freak--a child-like, aquatic mutant apparently able to replicate itself and ride on magic fish--as we behold it's struggle to save this unbalanced world. I guess it's sort of an amphibious Jesus:

Those lines Liam Neeson reads really evoke images of Liam Neeson in a studio reading his lines.

(Thanks, Breanna.)
