Walt Disney Studio Home Entertainment in Japan has launched a website for the home video release of Ghibli no E-Shokunin: Oga Kazuo Ten: Totoro no Mori no Kita Hito (The Artisan of Ghibli: Kazuo Oga Exhibition: The Man Who Drew Totoro's Forest) and posted a trailer in 1M, 500K, and 56K bandwidths on November 12.
This project will recreate this past summer's exhibition of art from Kazuo Oga, the background artist for such anime classics as Barefoot Gen and Harmagedon, as well as most Ghibli films from My Neighbor Totoro to Spirited Away. The DVD also includes two video specials on Oga and his work. The Museum Of Contemporary Art in Tokyo hosted over 2 million visitors to the exhibition, and had to extend its run to accommodate the demand for tickets. The single-DVD version and the DVD/Blu-ray Disc package will ship on December 19 in Japan.
