Ok, I've waited long enough that I think it's safe to ask this, but has anyone heard when the DVD is scheduled to be released for this? I want to put it on my watch/wish list and get it, but if it's not due out for quite a while, then no point occupying a spot on my lists that could be used for something else. ^_^

No, there's no official release date yet. I'm not expecting it until at least May or June 2005, partly due to the fact that it'll run for months in the Japanese theatres like Sen did. The R2 *should* have English subtitles (unlike the R2 release of Steamboy ), Ghibli's releases usually do as they know their English speaking fans are numerous...

Oh good. Then I'll add it to my watch list about April then. As long as I had a window to start watching for it, that's all I needed. I kinda figured that the DVD wouldn't show up till then, but I wanted to be sure first.

The best way to keep informed is to join Nausicaa.net's excellent Miyazaki Mailing List , they're nearly always the first to publish release dates as well as any tidbits of Miyazaki or Ghibli related news...

I think it is *highly* likely the R2 DVD release of Howl's will have English subtitles, for three very good reasons -

1) All R2 releases from Ghibli have English Subtitles

2) English subtitles already exist for Howl's Moving Castle, they were used for the Venice Film Festival and press screenings

3) Ghibli knows it has a huge overseas following (especially in Europe, France in particular) .

BTW the release won't be in January, that's far too early for a Ghibli film that's still number one at box office (and still breaking all existing records in the process). Howl's will run for months, because Miyazaki movies are rare gems and people just can't get enough of them. As I said before May or June at the earliest

It's going to be sheer agony waiting till then, hopefully I'll get to see it on the big screen soon. It's already bad enough seeing that hefty enticing artbook in my local Kinokuniya, I'm having trouble deciding whether to get it now and risk being spoiled for the movie, or wait till the "english version" (Viz will probably do this too right?) comes out ... eons later! Have the Spirited Away artbook (given by 2 absolutely lovely friends ^^) with all the words in Japanese, and it's killing me as I can't understand it!!

Viz may do an English language version of the 'Art of' book, but probably not until the Disney dub has a release date. Which was their approach with Sen as I recall. I'll get my copy after I've seen the dvd, as to not spoil anything like you say, even though I've read Diana Wynne Jones's novel years ago.

I'd love to see it at the cinema, but even Sen's dubbed release (which I didn't watch anyway) had a very limited theaterical in the UK, a year after the R2 DVD came out. So the R2 is the way I'll get to see it anytime soon. It'll be worth the wait though.

Ok, my memory sucks for this kinda thing, but I remember there was a thread a while back discussing about the dvd releases for several ghibli films. Someone said that none of them had reached the states and presented some kinda proof to that fact. I just walked into a suncoast and found "My Neighbor Totoro", "Spirited Away", "Laputa", "Kiki's delivery service", and several other ghibli flims I can't remember offhand. But if those are on the shelves then whoever said that they weren't for sale in the states yet was wrong. They're all R1's too. I checked. English dub at that!

Just wanted to bring that up.

I see I'm the first to post here since the server problems, so I don't know how other people felt. But I myself was extremely underwhelmed by this movie. The animation, of course, was fabulous. But I found myself quickly quite bored. Maybe it's just that I've now seen so many great TV anime, with stories and characters that are much more interesting to me, so the Ghibli magic is wearing thin.

Yea it was not the best Ghibli film but it did manage to get nominated for an oscar. Although I believe it won't win at least it got nominated over other big box office cgi animations like madagascar and chicken little.
