I’m personally really looking forward to this. Miyazaki’s Spirited Away is my all-time favorite Ghibli film. It’s absolutely stunning animation from a master at the top of his game. As you should already know, Miyazaki’s first animated film, Lupin the Third: The Castle of Cagliostro, will be released on Collector’s Edition Blu-ray here in the States for the first time on 6/23 from Discotek Media. We’ve also confirmed that GKids and Universal will be releasing Studio Ghibli’s latest film, When Marnie Was There, on Blu-ray and DVD later this year.
Speaking of Universal, the studio has set Parks and Recreation: Season Seven – The Farewell Season and Parks and Recreation: The Complete Series for DVD only release on 6/2.
Meanwhile, Troma is releasing The Toxic Avenger, Part II on Blu-ray/DVD Combo on 4/14 (SRP $24.95), along with Class of Nuke ‘Em High 2 on Blu-ray/DVD Combo that same day.
Ketchup Entertainment is releasing Harlock: Space Pirate on DVD on 3/31.
Also, PBS Distribution has set Dancing on the Edge for Blu-ray and DVD release on 5/5, followed by Masterpiece Mystery!: Grantchester on both formats on 4/7.
Finally today, are there any Bond fans in the house? In about two hours, the official 007 website is going to debut the first teaser trailer for Bond 24, a.k.a. SPECTRE. Click the link for that and enjoy.

That’s all for now. Gave a great weekend and we’ll see you on Monday!
