Miyazaki at the Venice Film Festival

Date: 2008 September 1st Monday [8:34] | Posted By: Joe
Category: > Anime > Film

BBC News have published an interesting interview with Oscar winning anime director Hayao Miyazaki, focusing on the release of Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea and it's screening at the Venice Film Festival. Oddly they ask about rivialy between Pixar, even though it's well known in fandom that Pixar and Studio Ghibli have strong ties, with John Lasseter and Hayao Miyazaki sharing a great friendship that was even documented on the DVD Thank You, Mr Lasseter.

The article mentions Miyazaki's advancing years, and how he will be over 70 years old when he does his next film.

UK fans will be pleased to hear that the article also mentions Ponyo will get a UK release in April 2009, although it's not clear if this will be a cinematic release or DVD release. Based on our previous experience with Ghibli releases in the UK we're guessing it will have a limited theatrical run first, before a DVD release.

Howl's Moving Castle Out This Week

Category: > Anime > DVD

While our US readers where treated to the DVD release of Howl's Moving Castle last week, our UK and Australian readers might want to take a look at our review of Howl's Moving Castle. Optimum and Madman really have put a nice lot of extras on this release, and it's good to see that along with a sub and a dub version they've also supplied subtitles for the English Language track.

The gap between the Japanese and US/UK release of this title was less than 5 months instead of 2 years compared to the UK DVD release of Spirited Away, it really shows you how much more mainstream anime has now become! It's also impressive to note that the US/UK/AU DVD releases are in the same two weeks, a first for a Ghibli English language DVD release! UK fans might want to hunt around for cut price bargains online and also consider that Amazon UK have an exclusive cover.

No Oscar For Howl's Moving Castle

Date: 2006 March 6th Monday [15:28] | Posted By: Joe
Category: > Anime > Film

Wallace and Gromit in The Curse of the Were-Rabbit won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film of the Year, beating Corpse Bride and Howl's Moving Castle. Reading around forums some anime fans are upset by this, but many more are realistic, Howl although beautifully animated is not as good storywise as Spirited Away, or many other previous Miyazaki works, many fans on the Miyazaki Mailing List have stated that they don't regard it to be the same league as other epics, like Nausicaa, Laputa: Castle In the Sky, My Neighbour Totoro, Kiki's Delivery Service or Porco Rosso. At least Studio Ghibli were beaten by a strong competitor, as this is Nick Park's forth Oscar.

Howl and Totoro Get a UK DVD Release This March

Category: > Anime > DVD

March marks an important month for UK Ghibli fans. Howl's Moving Castle, Hayao Miyazaki's latest film gets a very swift UK DVD release, we're really impressed at how quickly it took for Optimum to bring this title to market, especially since it was only released on DVD in Japan in November 2005, previously there has been a great gap between Ghibli DVD releases outside of Japan. Optimum will be releasing a two disc set packed with extras.

Many more anime fans will be excited to hear that My Neighbour Totoro finally gets an official UK DVD release, after many years of waiting. The film was a great success in Japan and as a result became Studio Ghibli's mascot and was incorporated into their logo. It's an excellent film and one of my all time favourite anime titles. It's a charming feature of children and adult alike, one of those real rare gems of a movie and a must have for any anime fan.

The Daily Yomuiri have a very interesting interview with Hayao Miyazaki, Japanese cultural icon and the Oscar winning director of Spirited Away. He talks about three shorts which can only be seen at the Ghibli Museum. It also focuses on the films Miyazaki would like to animate, along with children's relationships with visual imagery. It also briefly touches on the tension between Miyazaki and his son Goro, although it's not exactly clear what the issues are between, although this doesn't stop fans speculating. The article concludes on a high note, stating that Studio Ghibli is the world's best studio in terms of potential, something that many fans had known, since they first saw Nausicaa, many moons ago.

Howl's Moving Castle Set For March 2006 DVD Release

Date: 2005 December 5th Monday [16:54] | Posted By: Joe
Category: > Anime > DVD

UK on-line retailer's Play.com and Amazon.co.uk have started to take pre-orders for Howl's Moving Castle, they both listing the release date as 13th March 2006. Otaku News had heard rumours about Optimum wanting to release Howl earlier, however in order to qualify for an Academy Award, they had to delay the release. What's interesting to note that the boxshots from Amazon and Play are different, which leads us to believe that both sites have produced mock-ups as they are missing vital details on the packaging such as the BBFC rating logo.

A quick check on Amazon.com reveals that they're taking pre-orders for two different versions of Howl's Moving Castle, which are priced the same, we suspect that Amazon will remove one edition nearer the launch date.

If Optimum and Buena Vista can release Howl's Moving Castle in March, they should be highly commended, since the Japanese DVD has just been released this November and Ghibli titles have been traditonally very slow to get US and UK DVD releases.

Earthsea the Next Miyazaki Film?

Category: > Production > Studio Ghibli

Ursula K. Le Guin’s classic A Wizard of Earthsea might possibly be the next film project Hayao Miyazaki is working on. Earthsea was adapted by the Sci Fi channel last year for a live action mini-series, that Le Guin publicly stated her dislike of because of the liberties it took with the story and concepts.

Ghibli has yet to make an official announcement, and it is perfectly possible this is all wild speculation since Miyazaki has admitted in the past he’s a fan of the book.

Both DVDs have their fair share of extras include storyboards, original Japanese Theatrical trailers, Studio Ghibli trailer reel, the Cat Returns DVD has a making of featurette, while Nausicaa has a birth of Studio Ghibli Featurette. Since both titles are Studio Ghibli titles, they're a must see, but if you're strapped for cash and can only get hold of one, go for Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, since it's truly epic Sci-Fi.

The list was put together with help from the public and is intended to spark debate about what children should watch.

Unsurprisingly, The Wizard of Oz, ET and Toy Story are listed, but it also seems that BFI (or perhaps the public in general) know what they're talking about by suggesting Spirited Away, Hayao Miyazaki's tale of a girl drawn into a world of magic after her parents pig out on forbidden food.

The BFI selected 50 films and eventually whittled them down to 10.

FilmFour have teamed up with Somerset House "to create a night at the movies like no other". They mention the "cutting edge technology and the splendour of the 18th century courtyard" and rightly so.

On Thursday 18th August, 6:30pm they'll be screening Studio Ghibli's superb Spirited Away, the only Japanese anime film to have won an Oscar. Tickets cost £12.50, with all phone and web bookings carrying an £1.75 charge per booking (not per ticket). As of yet it's not clear if the screening will be subbed or dubbed, but we will chase it up and post more details as soon as we find out.

If you haven't seen Spirited Away on a cinema screen yet, the Otaku News Crew highly recommend it.

Aichi To Keep Satsuki's and Mei's House

Date: 2005 June 27th Monday [14:10] | Posted By: Joe
Category: > Anime

Following on from several stories about Satsuki's and Mei's House, Anime News Network cite Yahoo! News Japan, stating that the popular attraction at the World Expo 2005 In Aichi, Japan will stay in Aichi. Previously several other groups and cities all took a keen interest in hosting the replica house from My Neighbor Totoro.

Apparently the house will be transferred to the Aichi prefecture in September, they will not have to pay to buy the house, however they have been concerned about it's high cost to maintain. The Otaku News Crew believe that the building must attract a lot of soot sprites!

New interview with Cindy and Don Hewitt at Naussicaa.net

Date: 2005 May 31st Tuesday [4:30] | Posted By: Azure
Category: > Production > Studio Ghibli

Naussicaa.net have posted a new interview with Cindy and Don Hewitt discussing their part in the studio Ghibli dubs. It’s an interesting read and explains decissions the couple have made such as adding extra lines to the end of Spirited Away. It also contains news of previously unreleased films such as Pompoko. The article is insightful and infuriating in equal measure.
