What's This? Gedo Senki DVD? A Dub?

Word on the street - specifically, the website otakunews.com - is that Gedo Senki (Tales From Earthsea) will be released on DVD this July 4 in Japan. This is rather sudden news, but Ghibli typically releases DVDs in summer or the Holidays, so it seems pretty sensible to me. The biggest surprise? Apparantly a Disney dub will be included! Seriously, no bluffing. It seems Disney has been working quietly behind the scenes to prepare an English-language dub for the film.

As always, expect English subtitles to be included on the DVD, and the usual extras like trailers and storyboards. Hey, now I don't feel so bad about having crummy subs on my download copy. Oops. Forget I said that. Nuthin' to see here, kids. Move along.

Heard over at the Anime World Order podcast a UK R2 release was also planned for a summer release that will probably use that Disney dub as well.
