Disney releasing 'Castle in the Sky' on the same day as 'The Secret World of Arrietty'

Disney continues to support its partnership with Studio Ghibli by partnering the Blu-ray release of 'The Secret World of Arrietty' with another Japanese animated classic, 'Castle in the Sky.' Both Ghibli releases will come out on Blu-ray May 22, 2012.

'Castle in the Sky' was produced in 1986 by Japanese animation master Hayao Miyazaki. It was his third film and was inspired by the stories of "Gulliver's Travels." Anyone who knows Miyazaki's work will be ecstatic about the news of this release from Disney.

The English dub uses voices from well-known actors like Anna Paquin, James Van Der Beek, and Cloris Leachman. Fans of Studio Ghibli titles will surely want to be picking this one up.
