Studio Ghibli’s ‘Spirited Away’ is Coming to Blu-ray
Okay I’m back. If you’ve never seen the film before, Spirited Away is about a young girl named Chihiro who, thanks to her parents’ blundering, gets stranded in an otherworldy Japanese bathhouse occupied by spirits, witches, extra-limbed old men, and other strange beings. It’s altogether weird yet charming.
This Blu-ray/DVD combo pack will feature 1080p video, a lossless 5.1 soundtrack, with special features such as:
- An introduction by John Lasseter of Disney/Pixar
- The Art of Spirited Away
- Behind The Microphone
- Original Japanese storyboards
- …and more.
I think Tony Zhou put it best:
Imagine all the detail we’ll be able to see in this face
In addition to Spirited Away, another of Studio Ghibli’s films, The Cat Returns, is also being released on Blu-ray the same day. I haven’t seen that one yet myself, so this would be the perfect opportunity.
