    Wow. Coming with a 4k restoration and English dub. Probably a regular Blu-ray from the 4k restoration and no UHD.

        Damn, GKIDS is kicking ass with their few TV series licenses. Of course, we're still waiting on more information about Evangelion, but I'm sure Khara is giving them plenty of red tape to deal with. I'm extremely excited for this. Wish it could be a UHD release, but a standard Blu-ray from the 4K restoration should get it 99% to ideal. A dub produced 43 years after the Japanese track will be very interesting to experience. Promising to see that they're planning to release it by the end of the year.

          GKIDS Acquires North American Rights to “Future Boy Conan”

          Series Marked the Directorial Debut of Acclaimed Director Hayao Miyazaki

          To Be Released in North America for the First Time, Featuring a New 4K Restoration and English Language Dub

          GKIDS, the acclaimed producer and distributor of animation for adult and family audiences, announced today it has acquired the North American distribution rights for FUTURE BOY CONAN (Mirai Shounen Conan), the 1978 directorial debut by Academy Award®-winner Hayao Miyazaki (Spirited Away). The 26-episode series, which was produced by Nippon Animation, will be released by GKIDS in late 2021. The acquisition marks the first time that the series will be available in North America. A new 4K restoration will be available in its original Japanese language, as well as a new English dub version. International sales are handled by Nippon Animation.

          “We are thrilled to help bring this legendary series to North America,” said GKIDS President David Jesteadt. “With a beautiful new restoration, now is the perfect time for American fans of director Hayao Miyazaki to experience this classic adventure series as it was meant to be seen.”

          SYNOPSIS:
          Twenty years ago, a terrible war fought with magnetic weapons caused the earth’s axis to tilt, and earthquakes and tidal waves destroyed civilization. Conan is born into this new world, raised by his adopted grandfather on an isolated island. But his life is forever changed when a mysterious girl named Lana washes ashore, pursued by shadowy operatives who seek to use her in a new scheme to control what’s left of the world.

          The directorial debut of Academy Award®-winner Hayao Miyazaki (Spirited Away) is a landmark in animation history. This delightful sci-fi adventure series, beloved worldwide but never before released in North America, features a new English language version and 4K digital restoration.

                Big week for GKIDS TV anime Blu-ray solicitations already. Nice to see this coming only four months after the licensing announcement. I'll wait to see if it gets any bonus on Shout! Factory. Not that I expected the Evangelion treatment, but I'm always fond of the option to buy some sort of premium edition, so not having that is unfortunate, but just getting it after over 40 years is enough.

                        No Shout! Factory exclusives, but it's still cheapest there (other than that one retailer that I trust a little less) and comes with a 16-page booklet, which I'm excited about, so I put in my order.
