Studio Ghibli’s Latest FROM UP ON POPPY HILL Set for DVD and Blu-Ray Release on 23rd September 2013


STUDIOCANAL have announced that FROM UP ON POPPY HILL is the latest Studio Ghibli animation to join their collection, complimenting their on-going plan to release the entire Ghibli catalogue in high definition for the first time in the UK. From up on Poppy Hill will be available from September 23rd 2013 on Single disc DVD, Double Play and Limited Collector’s Edition Double Play (including postcards) with a host of extras supervised by Ghibli.

From the legendary and highly celebrated Studio Ghibli (SPIRITED AWAY, PONYO, ARRIETTY) comes FROM UP ON POPPY HILL, the uniquely inspired and highly anticipated coming-of-age story directed by Goro Miyazaki from the screenplay by Hayao Miyazaki. Set in Yokohama in 1963, this lovingly hand-drawn film centers on Umi (voiced by Sarah Bolger) and Shun (voiced by Anton Yelchin) and the budding romance that develops as they join forces to save their high school’s ramshackle clubhouse from demolition. The top-grossing Japanese film of 2011 and winner of the Japan Academy Prize for Animation, FROM UP ON POPPY HILL captures the innocence of new love as well as the beauty of Yokohama’s harbor and lush surroundings. The English language version also features the voices of Gillian Anderson, Jamie Lee Curtis, Isabelle Fuhrman, Christina Hendricks, Ron Howard, and Chris Noth.

I love practical effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Yakuza Zero and Mafia III.
