    Wow, and here I thought Disney was being awfully stingy about bringing Miyazaki's BDs to the states. This is quite a surprise. Not my favorite Miyazaki by any means, but it IS gorgeous and has its charms. I also really liked Kimberly Williams-Paisley as Fio; she had great chemistry with Michael Keaton.

        The French dub isn't listed... damn. Hope that's an error, and it's still actually there.

        My mother, who is a native French speaker (and used to teach French at a nearby high school) *loved* the French dub of Porco Rosso... Jean Reno did a superb job, and the script utilized many era-appropriate French terms and terminology (ones my mother hadn't heard in decades). To be honest, Michael Keaton's performance sounded phoned-in.

        I will definitely be picking this up. It may not be one of Miyazaki's more popular films here in America, but I really quite love it.

          I really liked this movie, so this is good news for me too.

            Excellent news! Porco Rosso is probably my favorite Studio Ghibli movie, and I have been waiting for when Disney would finally release it on Blu-Ray.

              With the way Disney has been going with their subtitles I'll have to wait for the reviews.

                  That sure is great that this movie is coming out on BD. That's just another one of the long line of excellent Ghibli movies.

                    It would be very unusual for Disney not to include a French track. For other anime it's not always so common since Anime is a niche title but for a Disney product it's pretty much mandatory up here for the Quebec market!

                        Oooh... French subtitle being listed gives hope that the French language track will make it to this release.

                            Not surprising. I can't ever remember a Disney title in Canada not having a French soundtrack.
