Going from this past year's releases, Nausicaa will probably come out in March or April. I'm guessing, but this year ghibli put out 3 already and Laputa is number 4.

Available to pre-order at www.amazon.co.jp with 15% off which is a huge discount as far as a Japanese disc is concerned.

Does anyone know how fast express shipping is to the US from Amazon Japan? I just ordered Spirited Away, Porco Rosso and Whisper of the Heart.

I don't know about express - but their regular shipping seems to be about 10-20 days.

The end of October, either the 20th or 30th. Can't quite remember.

How much is the Japan release in U.S. dollars? And won't the Korean disc be the same thing, but with Korean subtitles added?

The Japan release cost me about $40. I 'm collecting all the R2 Ghibli films, and I guess, for now, I can afford it, so I don't mind.

I think the R3s are cheaper.

R3 Miyazaki releases in both Hong Kong and Taiwan run around $18-22. I am not aware of any Korean versions, but the HK and Taiwan versions are authored by Ghibli themselves and should be identical in quality.
