Discotek Media has previously released three Toei Doga animated features: Puss in Boots (1969), Animal Treasure Island (1971), and Taro the Dragon Boy (1976). I remain hopeful that more of Toei's classic animated features could arrive on our shores. And Horus is the most important title of the lot.
Horus, Prince of the Sun has been a special passion of mine ever since I first watched it in 2005, when the UK DVD (a poor, third-rate release) and fansub (a far better choice) were released. It's a film I champion as a masterpiece - "The Citizen Kane of Anime" - and believe that it deserves a proper release here in the States. I am already neck-deep in design notes for the supplemental materials, and am banging on Discotek's doors so we can work on the project. I must stress that I am currently NOT working with them; I am only sending inquiries, with specific outlines and notes.
If you'd like to help Ghibli Blog, please contact Discotek Media and ask for us to be included on the BD/DVD production. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Stay tuned, kids.
