Once again, that accursed "probably" has to go in my headline. I've got an e-mail out to Bandai to confirm, buuuut...

The official Gurren Lagann the Movie USA website has updated. A bunch of the site doesn't seem to work quite right at this time, but I did notice one thing: the "DVD" link heads straight on over to the Bandai Entertainment website.

What more can I say at this time? I've already heard a couple of rumblings about whether they'll dub the movies or not given that Bandai chose not to dub the Lucky Star OVA. That said, I'm personally hoping for a full-scale dub-and-sub release of both films in one box with some awesome swag...although on the other hand, it might not be possible to top the light-up drill that came with the TV series.

Awesome news!  Maybe at some point they could do a big boxset that comes with the anime and the movie together.

@JJOR64: Hmm, all 27 episodes AND both movies? How much would that cost on dvd or blu-ray?

they also need to license the parrallel works and add those as extra features.

Oh, well if this happens, then I'm super happy! (probably)

It wouldn't neccessarily be a huge printing on Blu-ray. you could probably get away with 2'ish-3'ish discs for the full deal. Then again, if they did it on blu-ray, that'd be our first chance to pick up Gurren in HD, so that'd probably be a great way to drive up value/interest.
