Disney has unveiled the first trailer for The Secret World of Arrietty, the animated family movie coming to theaters on February 17, 2012. The animated adventure is based on Mary Norton’s children’s book series The Borrowers and features the voice of Bridgit Mendler, Will Arnett, Amy Poehler, and Carol Burnett.

The Story:

Arrietty (voice of Bridgit Mendler), a tiny, but tenacious 14-year-old, lives with her parents (voices of Will Arnett and Amy Poehler) in the recesses of a suburban garden home, unbeknownst to the homeowner and her housekeeper (voice of Carol Burnett). Like all little people, Arrietty (AIR-ee-ett-ee) remains hidden from view, except during occasional covert ventures beyond the floorboards to “borrow” scrap supplies like sugar cubes from her human hosts. But when 12-year-old Shawn (voice of David Henrie), a human boy who comes to stay in the home, discovers his mysterious housemate one evening, a secret friendship blossoms. If discovered, their relationship could drive Arrietty’s family from the home and straight into danger.
