This fall will be a perfect time to fill in the gaps in your Studio Ghibli collection. Animation distributor GKIDS is partnering with Studio Ghibli to release the studio’s most popular films in all-new Blu-ray and DVD editions (IndieWire).
The first six titles will hit shelves on October 17: Howl’s Moving Castle, Kiki’s Delivery Service, My Neighbor Totoro, Ponyo, Princess Mononoke, and Spirited Away—all films directed by Miyazaki himself. New editions of Castle in the Sky and Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind will follow on October 31. Other films that will receive the same Blu-Ray and DVD treatment in later months include Porco Rosso and Tales from Earthsea.
GKIDS is currently handling the Studio Ghibli Fest 2017, which sees several of these same films returning to U.S. theaters for limited engagements. See Fathom Events for more details and to purchase tickets.
