Panda Go Panda DVD Coming April 17
Discotek has announced that April 17 will be the release date for Panda Go Panda on DVD in North America. This is a very welcome return for the pair of Isao Takahata-directed short films, which have been out of print and out of circulation here for a number of years. The new cover design is the same one that's been used overseas, and I've always enjoyed it. Studio Ghibli's DVD release, naturally, remains the best.
I really do hope we get the uncut credit sequences. I don't want to see that title hack-job that appeared on the Pioneer DVD release. We will be watching closely, and hoping for the best.
Update: On their Facebook page, Discotek confirms that the original, uncut title sequences will be on the DVD. Excellent news!
