Only Yesterday Film's DVD/BD Release Listed on July 5

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda

Amazon is listing the DVD and Blu-ray Disc home video release of Studio Ghibli and Isao Takahata's Only Yesterday anime film on July 5.

North American film distributor GKids released the film in theaters in the United States and Canada from February to April. It had announced that it had also licensed the non-theatrical, home video, and television rights for the film.

GKids describes the film:

It's 1982, and Taeko (Daisy Ridley) is 27 years old, unmarried, and has lived her whole life in Tokyo. She decides to visit her family in the countryside, and as the train travels through the night, memories flood back of her younger years: the first immature stirrings of romance, the onset of puberty, and the frustrations of math and boys. At the station she is met by young farmer Toshio (Dev Patel), and the encounters with him begin to reconnect her to forgotten longings. In lyrical switches between the present and the past, Taeko contemplates the arc of her life, and wonders if she has been true to the dreams of her childhood self.

Daisy Ridley (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) stars in the film's English dub cast as Taeko. The cast also includes Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire), Ashley Eckstein (Star Wars: The Clone Wars), and Alison Fernandez (Law & Order: SVU).

GKids' theatrical release corresponded with the film's 25th anniversary. Before GKids' theatrical release and upcoming home video release, the film had not previously been released in North America.
