I know this entry will make the AHT look like a Studio Ghibli fan blog even more than it already is, but I just had to report this: Disney Entertainment Japan announced to release Hayao Miyazaki’s masterpiece Princess Mononoke (Mononoke Hime) on Blu-ray Disc on December 4th!
As always, this Japanese release will fulfill almost all international desires in regards of audio tracks (Japanese, English, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Finnish, German, Korean, Cantonese) and subtitles (English, Japanese, French, German, Korean, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese).
The Cat Returns (Neko no Ongaeshi) will be released on the same day, also with several dub and subtitle tracks. However, it doesn’t feature any angry boar gods or headless giants, so I’m just getting it to keep the collection in shape…
Hayao Miyazaki fans rejoice! After several months without any new Blu-ray Disc announcements from Studio Ghibli AV Watch now reports that Miyazaki’s 1992 Porco Rosso will get a high resolution release in Japan on July 17th.
