The Sky Crawlers (R1/US BD) in May - Artwork added

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment have announced the US DVD and Blu-ray Disc release of The Sky Crawlers on 26th May 2009. Directed by Mamoru Oshii (Ghost in the Shell) and based on the novel series by Hiroshi Mori, The Sky Crawlers is the story of an exciting but endless war with heroes too young to understand the reality of their battles.

A group of eternally young fighter pilots known as Kildren experience the sudden loss of innocence as they battle the enemy in astonishing dogfights above the clouds. With his only childhood memory consisting of intense flight training, the fearless teenage pilot Yuichi's dogfights coexist with his struggle to find his missing past. When his beautiful, young female commander Suito is reluctant to discuss the fate of the pilot that Yuichi is replacing - or the strangely perfect condition of that pilot's former aircraft - Yuichi's curiosity becomes heightened.
