The animated drama directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi is headed for Blu-ray in early October.
In an early announcement to retailers, Universal says 'When Marnie Was There' will arrive on Blu-ray on October 6.
When shy, artistic Anna moves to the seaside to live with her aunt and uncle, she stumbles upon an old mansion surrounded by marshes, and the mysterious young girl, Marnie, who lives there. The two girls instantly form a unique connection and friendship that blurs the lines between fantasy and reality. As the days go by, a nearly magnetic pull draws Anna back to the Marsh House again and again, and she begins to piece together the truth surrounding her strange new friend. Based on the beloved young adult novel by Joan G. Robinson and directed by Yonebayashi (The Secret World of Arrietty), the film is a haunting tale gorgeously rendered with its moonlit seascapes, glowing orchestral score, and powerful portrayals of friendship and belonging.
The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, lossless 5.0 soundtracks, and supplements include: The Making of When Marnie Was There, Yohei Taneda Creates the Art of When Marnie Was There, Feature-Length Storyboards, Behind the Scenes with the Voice Cast, Foreign Trailers and TV Spots, and US Trailer.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $24.99.
