If you are currently waiting for the next ‘high definition’ Studio Ghibli film to add to your collection then prepare to get excited; as Amazon UK have recently listed not one but two very special Blu-ray sets.
First up is the long overdue Blu-ray release of Spirited Away, a film which is one of my personal favourites, which is currently priced at £24.99 and is scheduled for release on the 3rd November 2014. The second title to be released is actually a Hayao Miyazaki box set; a set celebrating the works of Hayao Mizyazaki’s by containing a variety of Studio Ghibli films that he has worked on; this particular set comes with a listing price of £249.99, which is far more expensive than any other anime release i’ve seen, and will also be released on the 3rd November 2014.
Details are scarce for both releases but judging from UK Anime Network they assume that the Hayao Miyazaki set will be ‘identical’ to the one released in Japan several months ago; whereby the set would contain all of the films that Miyazaki has been involved with as well as a variety of short films and bonus content.
Eitherway both Spirited Away and the Hayao Miyazaki sets are coming to the UK on Blu-ray and will be distributed by STUDIOCANAL; the current UK distributor for Studio Ghibli films, on the 3rd November 2014.
