Did you know that a Jonas and a Cyrus have teamed up on a project? Who is is…what is it? Noah Cyrus and Frankie Jonas are voice actors in the animated movie, “Ponyo,” which is by “Spirited Away” director Hayao Miyazaki.


In Ponyo, a young and overeager goldfish named Ponyo decides to leave her underwater world behind after making friends with a five-year-old boy who lives in a small coastal village. Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Mermaid,” Ponyo comes to the big screen as imagined by legendary Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki, whose credits include films Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle.

Noah Cyrus told the Press Association, “I actually have a movie coming out call ‘Ponyo'. I play a goldfish in it, and I wanna be a human in it, and my best friend is a human, and I think that’s where I get it from, and then I turn into a human. The guy who plays my best friend in it is Frankie Jonas, the Jonas Brothers’ little brother.”

“Ponyo” will be released on August 14, 2009 and also includes Cate Blanchett, Matt Damon, Tina Fey, Cloris Leachman, Liam Neeson, Lily Tomlin and Betty White as voice actors.
