28 August 2007 @ 17:37Tales from Earthsea DVD arrived
I received my copy of Tales from Earthsea today. I’m quite a fan of Studio Ghibli’s work, so when I found out that Tales from Earthsea might not make it to the US until 2009, I decided to pickup the Region 3 DVD from YesAsia.com.
According to Anime News Network, the Sci Fi Channel aired a live action version of Tales from Earthsea in 2004 and holds the rights for it until 2009.
Yes, this is a Region 3 disc and I live in Region 1, but of course there are ways around that. You could check out this deal on a free Region Free DVD player, or you can choose from a wide variety of Region Free DVD players from YesAsia.com.
From YesAsia.com, “Enter a dark, magical world of dragons and sorcery in Studio Ghibli’s blockbuster animated epic Tales from Earthsea. Adapted from Ursula K. Le Guin’s beloved children’s fantasy book series, Tales from Earthsea marks the phenomenal directorial debut of Miyazaki Goro, the son of the legendary Miyazaki Hayao. Complex and compelling, Tales from Earthsea presents a sweeping, fantastical story about a young prince’s journey through darkness and redemption.”
