We've got Ponyo
on Blu-Ray in the US already, but I can't hide my desire to have my favorite Miyazaki films in the same format, such as Spirited Away
and Princess Mononoke
. Of course, you know it's coming, but the work it takes to create such a release is a painstaking process, so I was willing to be patient. At least, until I got word today that the UK and Australia will see a Blu-Ray release of Ghibli classic Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind before we will. And then I just got downright jealous.
Madmen Entertainment will be releasing the Blu-Ray edition, which comes to the UK October 18th and Australia in November. The Blu-Ray releases of Miyazaki's films have done very well in Japan, so let's hope someone notices and brings them stateside sooner so we can hurl money at them ferociously.
