The animated film is swimming toward Blu-ray in May.

In an early announcement to retailers, Sony is preparing The Red Turtle for Blu-ray on May 2.

Marking the much-anticipated return of Studio Ghibli, this masterfully animated fantasy film tells the story of a man shipwrecked at sea who becomes stranded on a beautiful but desolate island. He learns to live in isolation, seemingly tormented in his efforts to escape the island by a giant red turtle. Miraculously, he soon comes upon a young woman also lost at sea and they create a family together.

Specs have not been announced yet, but supplements will include:

- The Birth of The Red Turtle
- The Secrets of The Red Turtle
- AFI Fest Q&A with Director Michael Dudok de Wit

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $30.99.
