THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED

PRINCESS MONONOKE

FROM STUDIO GHIBLI

A FILM BY HAYAO MIYAZAKI

TO BE RELEASED ON BLU-RAY DOUBLE PLAY FOR THE FIRST TIME ON 19 MAY

From the critically acclaimed writer and director of Spirited Away and Ponyo, Hayao Miyazaki, and available for the first time on Blu-ray in stunning high-definition, PRINCESS MONONOKE is released on Blu-ray Double Play on 19 May, 2014 courtesy of STUDIOCANAL.

PRINCESS MONONOKE depicts the clash between the natural world and its old gods, and the rise of humans and the beginnings of modern civilisation. It shows three elements of the Japanese psyche warring for supremacy in an epic ecological fable of stirring mythic power.

On a journey to find the cure for a Tatarigami’s curse, Ashitaka finds himself in the middle of a war between the forest gods and Tatara, a mining colony. In this quest he also meets San, the Mononoke Hime.

Originally released in 1997 in Japan, the film was then released in the United States with an English-speaking script translated by Neil Gaiman, author of Anansi Boys and American Gods, including vocal performances from Claire Danes, Minnie Driver, Billy Crudup and Gillian Anderson.

This was the first Studio Ghibli film to have major success outside of Japan and is celebrated for both clever visual design and smooth animation. A cult classic, PRINCESS MONONOKE is a treat for fans of anime and fantasy films alike.

Blu-ray Extras: Complete Feature Length Storyboards (Alternative Angle) • Princess Mononoke in the U.S. • Original Trailers & TV spots

THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED

THE CAT RETURNS

FROM STUDIO GHIBLI

A FILM BY HIROYUKI MORITA 

TO BE RELEASED ON BLU-RAY DOUBLE PLAY FOR THE FIRST TIME ON 19 MAY 

From the makers of the Oscar® winningSpirited Away, THE CAT RETURNS IS available for the first time on Blu-ray Double Play in stunning high-definition from 19 May, 2014 courtesy of STUDIOCANAL.

A spin-off from the existing Studio Ghibli film, Whisper of The Heart, THE CAT RETURNS

was originally planned as a twenty-minute short film but was later extended to full feature-length from the storyboards that Hiroyuki Moritas translated from Aoi Hiiragi’s Baron: The Cat Returns story.

When young girl Haro saves the life of a Cat King’s son, Prince Lune, she finds herself visiting the magical Kingdom of Cats where the King would like to say thank you. But when Haro discovers that the King also wants her to marry Prince Lune, she must decide if she wants to stay in the Kingdom of Cats or return to her own world.

The Blu-ray features both the original Japanese version with English subtitles, along with the English-language equivalent including an all-star voice cast of Anne Hathaway, Tim Curry, Kristen Bell and Judy Greer.

THE CAT RETURNS is both a cult classic for fans of anime and a fantasy adventure tale perfect for young audiences.
