Princess Mononoke R2 DVD with English Subtitles -SORTA

posted on 2001-10-03 14:21 EDT
It would seem that recent reports that the 6 hour, 3 disc "How the film was conceived" set includes English subtitles have been grossly exagerated due to misunderstanding.

CD Japan lists the Region 2 "Making of" as having English subtitles. Unfortunately it would appear that only the 20 minute "Princess Mononoke in the USA" about Mononoke's stateside promotion has English subtitles. The other 5 hours and 40 minutes are not believed to include subtitles.

A word of warning, the making of set does not include the film itself. The movie is being released on a seperate 3 DVD boxed set that includes the movie (of course), Storyboards, and the international version of the film with 8 audio tracks (Japanese, English, Cantonese, French, Italian, Spanish, German, Portuguese) as well as theatrical trailers from each country.

Both DVDs are to be released on November 21st with a retail price of 4935Yen, about US$50. Both DVDs are Region 2 only!
