Studio Ghibli Blu-rays in June

Studiocanal have announced the UK Double Play release of two Studio Ghibli titles on 25 June 2012. Coming to UK Blu-ray for the first time is Hayao Miyazaki's Howl's Moving Castle and son Goro's Tales From Earthsea. Both include original Japanese language and English dub tracks, extras from the old DVD releases and a few new featurettes...

Japan is getting My Neighbor Totoro and Grave of the Fireflies on Blu-ray this July so we should see those over here very late 2012, maybe early 2013. Before those we'll hopefully also see a release of Ghibli's latest film (and Goro's second directorial effort) From Up on Poppy Hill in UK cinemas if not on Blu-ray. It's out on Japanese Blu-ray on 20 June 2012.
