Sony Pictures will release The Sky Crawlers on Blu-ray Disc™ and DVD May 26, 2009. From Mamoru Oshii, the world-acclaimed director of Ghost in the Shell, comes an award-winning story of an exciting but endless war with heroes too young to understand the meaning of their battles. This visually stunning anime adventure brings to life the nail-biting dogfights from the epic air battles described in Hiroshi Mori‘s best-selling novel in Japan . Special features include featurettes on animation and sound design, and the research behind bringing real sights and sounds to life in anime. Exclusively available on the Blu-ray™ High-Def version is an insightful interview with director Oshii.
I have been hearing so much about this movie, so I will probably pick up this release when it comes out. Though, May is kind of a while away. The MSRP is $39.99, but I’m sure you will be able to find it somewhere in the $20 to $30 range when it comes out.
