'The Princess and the Pilot' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Tue Feb 19, 2013 at 10:00 AM PST by

The anime film based on Koroku Inumura's novel is coming in May.

In an early announcement to retailers, Paramount has revealed 'The Princess and the Pilot' for a Blu-ray release on May 14.

The war between the Levamme Empire and the Amatsukami Imperium has been raging for years. In the midst of this struggle, the prince of the Levamme Empire declares his love for Juana del Moral and vows to end the war in one year as part of his marriage proposal. When the Amatsukami catch wind of this, they assault the del Moral residence, targeting Juana's life.

As a last-ditch effort to bring the prince his bride, the San Maltilia Airforce employs a mercenary of mixed blood - a bestado - to fly Juana to the prince in secret. The pilot, Charles, accepts the mission... but traversing an ocean alone, and into enemy territory, proves a much more dangerous ordeal than anyone could have anticipated.

Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements will include Japanese Commercials; and Theatrical Previews; plus a 32-page hardcover art book filled with detailed character info, rough sketches, artist interviews, and setting illustrations.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is still undetermined at this time.
