    I knew Disney wouldn't skip over the next (Hayao) Miyazaki-directed movie. Looking forward to the theatrical run assuming it makes its way near enough to me (both Arrietty and Poppy Hill did, so I'm not too worried), although when I get the combo pack, I might have to switch it over to the Japanese and see how long I can bear to listen to Anno try to act.

      The kicker here is that it isn't under Walt Disney Pictures like the rest of the Ghibli catalog. It's under Touchstone Pictures, the illustrious label that includes the Step Up movies and Gnomeo and Juliet. It's pretty much the "we care but we really don't" label. It used to be a really good, mature themed label. Now, not so much.

        Weird. Was expecting this to go to GKIDS with home video by Cinedigm like Poppy Hill. From what I've seen, this looks even less mainstream than even Poppy Hill. Maybe the Miyazaki name helped.

        The Touchstone distribution is similar to Princess Mononoke's (now former) Miramax label.

        With that said, it's good for a picture like this. Maybe it will play near me...

          Yeah, Disney licensing a Miyazaki film isn't exactly shocking news, even it is under the Touchstone label (as GoldenWaste pointed out).

          However, I am a little curious - how did Miyazaki get around the industry & war aspects? Generally, he does like flying machines, but this involves industrialized mass production of planes to fight a war . . . both of which are big no-no's in a Miyazaki movie. Did he just gloss over them?

            And @ghibli_intl is delighted to produce, with @LeDoctor (Frank!) and a crackerjack team, the English-language dub of #TheWindRises.

              The film has more to do with Jiro chasing his ambition to be an airplane engineer and his experience in the Great Kanto earthquake. As the film goes on his work as an airplane engineer takes a backseat and the narrative focuses on his personal life.

                I think the majority of the film takes place before WW2.

                  First off, have you seen the Dreamworks film that Disney released under the Touchstone label?

                  Second, I could understand why Disney would release this as a "Touchstone Pictures" release rather than Disney itself, as this isn't your typical Miyazaki film and the film's plot (a story based on the life of a Japanese WWII airplane designer) makes it feel more like something that would be released by Touchstone than the Disney label itself.

                    No, I don't care to see it anyways. It looked really dumb from all the trailers.

                    Touchstone is a significant step down regardless of content. Disney already hasn't given much priority to Ghibli stuff and its a drop in the bucket for them. Now that this isn't under Walt Disney Pictures and under Touchstone, expect an even steeper decline in care. The people who cared enough about Ghibli films all these years at Disney aren't going to be able to touch this.

                      Great to see Disney continue their stronghold on Miyazaki titles here as expected.

                            Lol, I was joking about this with my brother not too long ago. The Arrietty dub was awful, but I think Disney will up their ante with the dub for a Miyazaki movie.

                              The Arrietty dub's biggest fault was the numerous changes to the original script. No guarantee that won't happen with the Wind Rises as well, even if the acting is "better".
