    Me either. I know it's a classic, but I also know it's going to be a tearjerker.
    It's all in the reflexes.

    Coming in November...

    "Due out exclusively from Amazon on November 17th, The Collected Works of Hayao Miyazaki contains each of the maestro’s eleven feature films: Lupin the Third: The Castle of Cagliostro, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, Castle in the Sky, My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Porco Rosso, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle, Ponyo, and The Wind Rises.

    But the highlight for those who already own all of these films on Blu-ray will be the set’s bonus features, including Yuki no Taiyo (Yuki’s Sun) — a 1972 television pilot based on a manga by Tetsuya Chiba that was directed, storyboarded and animated by Hayao Miyazaki. The set also contains three episodes (26, 27, and 41) of the 1972 anime series Akado Suzunosuk (Little Samurai), featuring storyboards by the filmmaker. Fans will also get the uncut version of Miyazaki’s Retirement Press Conference, which was thankfully not the final page in his career. The whole package is rounded off with a book featuring The Great Dichotomy: Looking at the Works of Hayao Miyazaki by Tomohiro Machiyama, which “explores the themes and techniques of this revered Japanese filmmaker, and selected text from Hayao Miyazaki’s initial notes and creative proposals for the production of each film.” "

    This is a pretty rad set.

    Wonder how much they are going to charge? I've only picked up Nausicaä and Ponyo, so I wont have to double dip on all the films, so if it isn't too much I might bite (even with the dubtitles on so many of the films)

    Formal pre-order is now live, it's an Amazon exclusive at $224.99.

    Given that it's got 11 features and probably a load of extras and fancy packaging that's not completely insane.

    Yeah, for a Di$ney release it is downright reasonable.

    This set basically HAS NO EXTRAS for the films. Below is a comment from a review of the set about audio options etc.

    In this Disney set you won't find any Streamline dubs for any movies which Disney commissioned dubs of themselves (nor all versions of their own dubs, opting for just their most recent edits of their dubs [to be closer to the original Japanese's intentions] on "Kiki's Delivery Service" and "Laputa: Castle in the Sky"), "Lupin the Third: The Castle of Cagliostro" is the only exception to the inclusion of Streamline dubbing because it is the only film in the set which they do not own all the distribution rights to (they had to sub license it from Discotek Media [but still, using the Streamline dub rather than the 2000 Manga dub or more recent family-friendly edit of the 2000 Manga dub, was a strange decision]). This is in some ways a very barebones set in that each film has one English dub, the original Japanese audio track, subtitles (I'll touch more on this in a moment), and no extras on the discs with the feature films (this bothers some people). What this set DOES offer is the first useful HD presentation available in the U.S. of many of these films for people who watch the original Japanese with English subtitles; Disney screwed up many of their previous standalone Blu-ray releases (and noteworthy DVD screw ups before that) so that they were somewhere between bothersome to unwatchable for original language fans/purists. Mononoke, Laputa, Kiki had straight up Disney dub sourced dubtitles, Ponyo had lossy Japanese audio, Nausicaa had burnt in English dub credits. This set fixes almost all of that (with the sort of exception being that Kiki reverted to the old Streamline dub dubtitles, which you'll find as the English subtitles on all official releases outside of the U.S., they're not perfect, but they're far closer to what is being said in the Japanese audio than the Disney dubtitles were). Also, there's no Blu-ray version of Totoro (in the U.S. or Japan, at least) with the Streamline dub you are looking for, so it isn't a failing of this set in particular... What this set offers is a great collection of films particularly for people who want to enjoy them with the original Japanese audio with decent English subtitles and be able to support a filmmaker we love with our wallets.

    Quick summary: Dub options are limited to the latest Disney dub of each film except Cagliostro (which is not a Disney property and does not have a Disney dub). If you want Japanese audio and usable English subtitles, this set is the ONLY option in the U.S. that delivers across the board for these films.
