The kind of fanservice movie one could completely skip without missing many details for the (inevitable) second season... but fans definitely won't want to do so. They'd be missing a lot of fun.

The North American anime distributor Bandai Entertainment will release Kazuki Akane's Escaflowne movie on Blu-ray Disc on September 1. The release will include English and Japanese dubbing as well as English subtitles. (Bandai Visual released the film on one Blu-ray Disc, pictured at right, in Japan in January of 2008.) The film is based on The Vision of Escaflowne, an alternate-world fantasy anime series created by the Sunrise anime studio, Macross creator Shoji Kawamori, and Akane; Bandai Entertainment reissued the original television series in an "Anime Legends" DVD box set in 2006.
