From Up on Poppy Hill Blu-ray Detailed

Posted July 18, 2013 10:41 PM by Webmaster

CinedigmGKIDS and New Video Group, a division of Cinedigm Entertainment, have officially announced and detailed the Blu-ray release of Studio Ghibli's latest animated film, From Up on Poppy Hill. Written by Hayao Miyazaki and directed by Goro Miyazaki, his son, the critically acclaimed coming-of-age story streets on September 3rd.

Official synopsis: Yokohama, 1963. Japan is picking itself up from the devastation of World War II and preparing to host the Olympics. The mood is one of both optimism and conflict as the young generation struggles to throw off the shackles of a troubled past. Against this backdrop of hope and change, a friendship begins to blossom between high school students Umi (Sarah Bolger) and Shun (Anton Yelchin) - but a buried secret from their past emerges to cast a shadow on the future and pull them apart.

From a screenplay by Academy Award-winner Hayao Miyazaki, the English language version is directed by multiple Academy Award-winner Gary Rydstrom from a script adaptation by Karey Kirkpatrick (James and the Giant Peach, Chicken Run, Charlotte's Web) and features an all-star English voice cast including Gillian Anderson, Sarah Bolger, Beau Bridges, Jamie Lee Curtis, Bruce Dern, Isabelle Fuhrman, Christina Hendricks, Ron Howard, Chris Noth, Emily Osment, Aubrey Plaza, Charlie Saxton, Alex Wolff and Anton Yelchin. Frank Marshall and Kathleen Kennedy executive produced.

The Blu-ray/DVD combo pack release of From Up on Poppy Hill features over three hours of bonus materials including:

  • Original Japanese and English Language Versions with Subtitles and Dubtitles
  • Post-Fukushima Earthquake Staff Speech and Press Conference with Hayao Miyazaki
  • Feature Length Storyboards
  • Celebrity Cast Recording Featurette with Behind-the-Scenes Footage and Interviews
  • Interview with Goro Miyazaki
  • Original Japanese Trailer and TV Spots
  • Theme Song Music Video by Aoi Teshima
  • 20-Page Booklet Containing Original Project Proposal by Hayao Miyazaki and a Letter from Goro Miyazaki
Embedded below is the film's original Japanese trailer (with subtitles), as well as an English dub trailer and clip.

Looks like a great release, although it's missing a few things from the JP release... Maybe Studio Canal will fix that.

This probably will never go down very far in price but I'll blind buy when it's slightly cheaper.

I am looking forward to adding this to my Studio Ghibli collection after being lucky enough to catch it in a local theater earlier this year.

It seems odd to me that Disney isn't handling distribution, they've done all the other modern Ghibli films, but oh well. I've heard pretty mixed things about this one, but I'll still pick it up since it's a Ghibli film.
