Miyazaki on Turner Classic Movies!

Miyazaki is going to have a spotlight on him every Thursday night in January 2006.

If you live in America and happen to have lots of cable channels one of which is Turner Classic Movies while enjoying the library of films from Studio Ghibli, well Thursdays in the month of January in 2006 are going to be awesome for you! Turner Classic Movies in honor of Miyazaki's 65th birthday will be dedicating their usual Thursday Director's spotlight on Miyazaki. Not only will films that Miyazaki directed be seen, but so will films that he had a producer or writing credit be shown! This means that movies such as Only Yesterday and Whisper of the Heart will be shown as well. Also for those that moan and gripe about dubs over subs, both the English language and Japanese language versions will be shown. I'm really excited about this myself especially for the movies that have yet to make it to DVD or have been translated into English. I'm also interested if the Totoro we see here is a new translation or the old Troma one.

Bringing this thread back from the dead so as to remind American viewers that this happening starting tomorrow night so set your VCRs to record whatever Miyazaki films you don't have on DVD or VHS!

Yeah, I already saw Princess Mononoke twice on there, once with subtitles, once dubbed. It didn't make a real difference to me except that in the English dub you have Gillian Anderson as the wolf leader whereas in Japanese it sounds like a male voice actor.

As I typed in my post, the Japanese VA for Moro sounded male.

The Japanese voice actor for Moro is a man, but he does lots of female roles.

Huh, that is interesting. It could be in anticipation of DVD releases of those titles in the UK. I know that the movies were shown here as a tribute to Miyazaki's 65th birthday as well as to gear up animation fans for the eventual release of some of these titles.

I think you're probably right.., there are currently 14 Studio Ghibli titles available to order/pre-order from both amazon & play.com..,
