Studio Ghibli's Next Blu-Ray - It's Whisper of the Heart July 20
Studio Ghibli has announced their next feature film to arrive on Blu-Ray disc - Yoshifumi Kondo's 1995 Mimi wo Sumaseba, aka Whisper of the Heart. This film will be released on July 20, along with The Borrower Arrietty. All the usual features we've come to expect will be present, including storyboards, trailers, English subtitles (of course!), and multiple language soundtracks, including Japanese, English, Cantonese and Mandarin.
Mimi is one of my favorite Ghibli movies. I'm really looking forward to seeing this in high definition, and I'm also thrilled that we're getting two new Blu-Rays this summer. You can see Ghibli's planning in that their upcoming feature, Kokuriko-Zaka Kara, is also a teen romance by a young director with a promising future. Mimi was a big success in Japan, and let's hope that success continues once again.
The Whisper BD will retail for 7,140 Yen in Japan. Expect it to arrive around the world either this Christmas or early next year.
