NAUSICAA and TOTORO get new dub releases in August...

Well, apparently Buena Vista Home Entertainment gets to be the first to offer the public the new dub of Nausicaa. I haven't seen any screenings listed anywhere. This is profoundly stupid considering this is still probably Miyazaki's most popular work. The new movie poster is beautiful, though, and you can bet I'll be picking this one up. However, there's no indication that the DVD will come with the Japanese language track. I hope it does, especially after the revoltingly bad dub of Laputa, Castle in the Sky.

Anime fans I've spoken to were upset that Porco Rosso had already come and gone during a film festival last year without them even getting an opportunity to see it. Disney is just showing how embarrassingly bad they are at almost everything now. Notice that they closed their own animation studio in favor of starting a 3DCG animation studio like Pixar (a company that has been Disney's bread and butter for a long time, but wants to part ways with them apparently).

I shouldn't say that Disney does everything badly now. The films Pirates of the Carribbean and the new version of Freaky Friday were actually some of the best films to come out last year.

In case you're interested in the DVD of Nausicaa, click here.
