Anime Limited has announced more details about the upcoming home release of Studio Trigger and XFlag's original film Promare, scheduled for June 29.
The film will be released as a Collectors Blu-ray, as well as standard Blu-ray and DVD editions. The Collectors Blu-ray edition (pictured left) will contain the Original Soundtrack CD (21 tracks) with music by Hiroyuki Sawano. It will also contain a 128-page Script Book, containing the film's full script in English, adapted with the involvement of Studio Trigger.
The Collectors edition was previously planned as a Blu-ray/DVD, but this is now not the case.
The Collectors Blu-ray will also include a 52-page booklet featuring Character and Rescue Gear Profiles and interviews with director Hiroyuki Imaishi, writer Kazuki Nakashima, character designer Shigeto Koyama and musician Hiroyuki Sawano. The Collectors Edition will also include a poster and a "PROME POLIS" decal sticker.
On disc extras include the short films “Side: Galo” And “Side: Lio” in both Japanese and English; an interview with Hiroyuki Imaishi; and Studio Trigger Roundtable; and "Behind The Scenes With The English Cast."
GKIDS previously described the film:
Thirty years has passed since the appearance of Burnish, a race of flame-wielding mutant beings, who destroyed half of the world with fire. When a new group of aggressive mutants calling themselves “Mad Burnish” appears, the epic battle between Galo Thymos, a new member of the anti-Burnish rescue team “Burning Rescue,” and Lio Fotia, the leader of “Mad Burnish” begins.
Director Hiroyuki Imaishi and scriptwriter Kazuki Nakashima teamed up again for the new project at Trigger. Trigger and Nakashima are credited with the original work. Shigeto Koyama was in charge of character design and mechanical design, and Sushio (Kill la Kill) was involved as an animator. Tomotaka Kubo (Mary and The Witch's Flower) was the art director, and Saishi Ichiko was in charge of logo design. Hiroyuki Sawano (Attack on Titan, Kill la Kill) composed the music. SANZIGEN Animation Studio handled the 3DCG animation. XFlag is credited with production, and TOHO distributed the film in Japan.
