The official release date for the North American home video release of Studio Ghibli’s anime film The Tale of Princess Kaguya has just been revealed. Universal Studios will be releasing Isao Takahata’s film in a two disc DVD set on February 17, 2015 for $19.99 USD and in a three disc DVD/Blu-ray combo pack on the same date for $24.99 USD.
The DVD release will feature Japanese and English Dolby Digital 5.1 audio, English subtitles and French subtitles. The Blu-ray release will feature Japanese and English Dolby Digital 5.1 audio, Japanese and English DTS-HD Master 5.1 audio, English subtitles and French subtitles. Both sets will include four extras: the announcement of the completion of the film, Japanese trailers and TV spots, US trailers and a video entitled ‘Isao Takahata and His Tale of the Princess Kaguya’. It is unlikely that the North American release will include all of the extras and features present in the Japanese release.
