We've just heard from Optimum Releasing who inform us that there will be no Spirited Away Special Edition as they are "sadly unable to release it due to the difficulty of acquiring new extras".
The Otaku News Crew had heard rumours about Optimum intending to release such a special edition of Spirited Away to tie in with the Cat Returns in June, however we decided not to publish sketchy information, preferring to wait until we could get more solid details. The Special Edition would have been made exclusively for the UK (and perhaps Australia too through Madman Entertainment), it would have not been a reauthored US DVD like many UK anime DVDs.
