Spectacular 25th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray Combo Pack
Available May 21, 2013
“Disney proudly celebrates the 25th anniversary of “My Neighbor Totoro,” the acclaimed Studio Ghibli film about the magic of friendship and sisterhood from Academy Award®-winning director Hayao Miyazaki (Best Animated Feature, 2002, ”Spirited Away”) – with the film’s Blu-ray debut on May 21, 2013.
Arriving for the first time on Disney Blu-ray with a spectacular new HD digital transfer, perfect picture and sound, the highly-anticipated release of “My Neighbor Totoro” features the fantastic voice talents of Timothy Daly, Lea Salonga and real-life sisters Dakota Fanning and Elle Fanning.
Lauded as “one of the most beloved of all family films” by critic Roger Ebert, “My Neighbor Totoro” is the heartwarming story of sisters Satsuki (voiced by Dakota Fanning) and Mei (voiced by Elle Fanning). Much to their delight, when Satsuki and her four-year-old sister Mei move into a new home in the countryside, they discover that their new neighbor is a mysterious forest spirit called Totoro—who can be seen only through the eyes of children. Totoro introduces them to extraordinary characters—including a catbus—and takes them on an incredible journey.”-Disney
I am a big fan of Anime, there is just something about it that makes a story a little more magical for me. I hadn’t seen this movie before the My Neighbor Totoro on Blu-ray release but I am happy I have to have it on Blu-ray now and to add it to my Blu-ray collection! It is such a cute story and a great family movie. I just love when I can add a movie to my collection that is one we can all watch together as a family. It also has bonus features that are interesting to watch like the Original Japanese Storyboards and “Creating My Neighbor Totoro”. It’s always fun to get a glimpse into the making of the film.
