    Well, what other cover art could Disney have used?

          Seems too tall to be a Blu-ray to me.

            All of Disney's Ghibli blu-rays have been in standard blu-ray cases, so I see no reason for this (and Howl) to be any different. Plus, I'm pretty sure that Disney uses that blue border on most of their blu-rays that aren't "platinum" or "diamond" editions on the blu-ray sized cases, so that's what this should be.

            Still amused that they choose to use the early art with the girl who isn't even in the movie since Miyazaki decided to split her personality into Satsuki and Mei for the final film.

              I'm sorry, but how ****ing idiotic is it to continually use artwork that was actually prototypical and shows a character that wasn't actually in the movie?!

                As expected, we continue to use the image of when Satsuki and Mei briefly fused into one girl during the iconic bus stop scene.

                  Especially when they used the Au cover on their first DVD release? The one I'm looking at right now. Why didn't they go back to this? As you say, just idiotic!

                  As for the size, the blue bordered slip cover shown is their standard Disney Ghibli BD release format. The Studio Ghibli part is an embossed gold colour and the spine is in gold as well. They've used it for all five of their previous Ghibli combo editions so these new additions should match up perfectly which I like a lot.

                  Now somebody tell me if there's going to be any differences in the English audio track? Well it be identical to my first edition DVD release or are they going to do another Laputa on us? That was my one big disappointment with that BD release?

                    Yeah, I wish they would use any of the covers used by AU, DE (same artwork as JP), JP, or UK. Instead they continue with this artwork. For the very least, the movie is coming out on Blu-ray.

                      Actually, I'm one of the few people who really liked this "fused" Mei/Satsuki cover. But then again I always like seeing prototype artwork, and I find it really cool whenever prototype artwork is used for an official release of a film. I guess it doesn't make "sense" and might leave mainstream buyers scratching their heads, but the creative process interests me personally more than "sense".

                        A very nice, classic looks to this cover, which is fit for a great classic movie that this is. While I prefer the Japanese covers, this one is just nice as well.

                          The cover is fine, but the border is way too large.

                            I really like the borders on their Ghibli releases. They make the slip covers look really classy and unique!

                            And now that they've started doing this, I don't want them to change it as it wouldn't match with all the other Ghibli releases.
