    Good news. I have been enjoying his movies of late--first SPIRITED AWAY and then PRINCESS MONONOKE. I rate SPIRITED AWAY slightly above PRINCESS MONONOKE, but enjoyed them both tremendously.

    Good news. Hopefully R1 dates will be similar. What I would like to know, is when is My Neigbor Totoro coming out?

    A little later than I'd hoped, but still absolutely AWESOME news. I've only seen two of the four (Proco Rosso, Nausicaa), but I'll be sure to buy all these.
    So far, Disney has really impressed me with their treatment of Ghibli's work.

    I ended up getting the Limited Edition R2 of Nausicaa... it's great! [​IMG]

    No new news on the R1 DVDs though, I expect them late 2004.

    Isn't Pom Poko the series where the animals use their testicles in highly creative ways? [​IMG]

    Yes, which is why I'm a little surprised that Disney is going to release it. I really didn't think they would release this film because of the testicle jokes. I'm glad that they are releasing it, because it is a pretty good film.

    Nausicaa.net reported yesterday that an August 31 release date is listed at FYE.com and Suncoast.com for Totoro, Nausicaa, and Porco Rosso.
    http://www.nausicaa.net/miyazaki/new...9727457,61646,

    Good news! Hope we can get them this soon. I've seen Porco and Nausicaa and they're both brilliant.

    I couldn't be happier. I haven't seen any of these films, but I've loved every Miyazaki film I've seen, so I'll be happy to buy these blind.

    And these are a good set to buy blind, since they are some of the best the director has to offer...

    Porco Rosso is amazing, though I think "Castle in the Sky" is my favorite Miyazaki. "Grave of the Fireflies" being one of my favorite films of all time. I can't wait for these three new releases (another Miyazaki day!)
    I also just picked up this Geneon title called "Panda Go Panda" directed by Takahata and written by Miyazaki. '72, I think. Though not as complex as their later work, it had a lot of the same warmth and was really cute, though decidedly aimed at a younger crowd.
    Two question
    Would Disney have the rights to "On Your Mark," the 6 minute short film/music video from 1995 that Miyazaki wrote/directed and therefore be a possibility on a future release?
    And any chance of seeing Takahata's "Anne of Green Gables" on R1 DVD any time? Is that Ghibli? Who owns it?
    Thanks!

    The only reason I would buy Nausicaa would be if they translated the commentary by Hideaki Anno that is on the R2 disc (most likely, it will just be dropped [since it is in Japanese [​IMG]])
