Complete Studio Ghibli Retrospective at The IFC Center in New York City

Anime fans and cinephiles rejoice! GKIDS is presenting the complete Studio Ghibli catalog in a month long retrospective at the IFC Center from Dec 16th to Jan 12th.

There will be 15 films in total spanning in release dates from 1984 to 2008 including Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, My Neighbor Totoro, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, Castle in the Sky, Ponyo, Howl’s Moving Castle, and Kiki’s Delivery Service. The films will be presented in subtitled and English dubbed, personally, I’m going with the English dubbed. I know, I know.

GKIDS is presenting Studio Ghibli films in North America theatrically, not only in New York City but the retrospective will tour in other major cities including Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington DC, Toronto, Boston, San Francisco, Seattle.

These movies are beautiful, exciting and extremely entertaining. I highly recommend checking out these movies out in theaters if the tour comes to your town.

    One thing that I DO want to mention is that LAPUTA, despite having a solid dub from Disney (even if purists think otherwise) won’t be showing at this screenings.  The reason?  The 35mm print existing has some slight deviances from the final mix on the DVD, so they’re still working on creating a new print for it.  Unfortunately this means that they couldn’t make it in time for the NYC showing, but they hope to do so next year.  As someone who is a huge fan of this film AND its dub, I thought it would be helpful to let you know since you decided to watch the Ghibli movies dubbed, too.  (Of course if you own the DVDs, then that issue is pretty much irrelevant.)
