Distributor GKids has released new clips from the Studio Ghibli documentary The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness as well as a new trailer. GKids began streaming the first subtitled trailer on November 19.

The Los Angeles Times newspaper's Hero Complex is streaming another clip.

Yomiuri Documentary award-winning director Mami Sunada (Ending Note: Death of a Japanese Salaryman) directed the film. It follows Studio Ghibli director Hayao Miyazaki as he worked on the Kaze Tachinu (The Wind Rises) film, director Isao Takahata as he worked on the film Kaguya-hime no Monogatari (The Tale of the Princess Kaguya), and producer Toshio Suzuki as he worked on both projects.

GKids signed the licensing deal with Studio Ghibli at the Annecy Animation Film Festival before the film's screening at the festival in June.

The documentary opened in theaters in New York City on November 28. GKids released the film via digital download on multiple Video On Demand platforms on Tuesday, and will release it on DVD on January 27. American distributor Cinedigm lists the DVD for US$29.99 with a preorder date of December 12. The DVD will have subtitles and will contain extras.

The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness premiered in Japan last year. The film screened in Toronto, San Diego, Pittsburgh, and Los Angeles before opening in New York City.

GKids is also currently showing The Tale of the Princess Kaguya in several theaters across the United States, with showtimes listed until December 19 in certain theaters.
