Product Description

Product Description

For the first time ever, the magic of Blu-ray(TM) high definition reveals the exquisite details in Hayao Miyazaki's epic masterpiece, NAUSICA- OF THE VALLEY OF THE WIND. Experience the film that launched the Academy Award(R)-winning career (2002: Best Animated Feature, SPIRITED AWAY) of one of the most celebrated filmmakers in the history of animation! After a global war, the seaside kingdom known as the Valley Of The Wind remains one of the last strongholds on Earth untouched by a poisonous jungle and the powerful insects that guard it. Led by the courageous Princess Nausica-, the people of the Valley engage in an epic struggle to restore the bond between humanity and Earth. Like Hayao Miyazaki's SPIRITED AWAY and PONYO, NAUSICA- OF THE VALLEY OF THE WIND will dazzle your senses with its intricately imagined storytelling and stunning animation -- now more spectacular than ever on Blu-ray!

Amazon.ca

The clarity of the Blu-ray format heightens the power and beauty of Hayao Miyazaki's striking ecological fable. A notable extra is "Behind the Studio," a short documentary that features composer Joe Hisaishi, studio executive Toshio Suzuki, and director Miyazaki (as well as this writer) discussing the making and significance of Nausicaä. "Enter the Lands" offers trailers of some of the Ghibli films and short descriptions of the main characters, but the map is rather tricky to navigate. Miyazaki's storyboards, timed to the soundtrack, were included in the previous release. Fans of Miyazaki's extraordinary films will want this Blu-ray for their libraries. (Rated PG: some scary imagery) --Charles Solomon

Wow! I've finally got to see the uncut version of Nausicaa Of The Valley Of The Wind, the very first masterpiece by the great Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli! Sore wa Sugoi Desu Yo! (Japanese: It's so awesome and amazing!)
Everything is so awesome; the soundtrack, the voicework, the story, the action scenes, the art work, and every thing else is so perfect, and well done too. Everything has been refined to the state-of-the-art level, which is what Studio Ghibli has been famous for. What's more, the message for peace, perseverance and prosperity, along with harmony and enviornmental protection and balance, have really touched deeply in my heart right from the start.
Overall, I'd like to say "Doomo Arigato Gozaimasu" to the great Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli for their great masterpiece, and shall give them 5 out of 5 stars for outstanding performance!

I had this movie in DVD format... with no french language on it and I decided to upgrade it to BLu-Ray, especially because the studio decided to put the French language track on the blu-ray. Well I was not disspointed! The movie is magnificient and it's a must own for all the Miyasaki-Ghibli fans!

Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind is probably one of my favourite movies of all time and I am incredibly delighted that it has finally seen the light of day uncut in North America. The horribly altered Warriors of the Wind (an early dub of the film back in the '80's) had rekindled an interest in Japanese animation in me that picked up where Battle of the Planets left off and I have been a fan of director Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli's output ever since.
Miyazaki's later films (all of which are great)certainly look better than Nausicaa (such as Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away) and there's no debating that, but considering this was only his second job as director for a theatrical film and it was made in something like 3 months (his later films have taken more than a year) it still holds up pretty well. It is starting to show its age of course, 20 years after it was originally released, but Miyazaki's story telling still stands tall.
I have mixed feelings about the new dub, which to my ears is the worst sounding of the Disney releases of Miyazaki's films. It is an improvement over the Warriors of the Wind dub where Nausicaa sounded like Rocky the Squirrel (and it is an urban myth that it was the same voice actor as Rocky), but it does suffer from a lot of Explaino™ (a comic book method of explaining the plot details to viewers things that would be immediately obvious to the characters themselves). However, a lot of that is present in the Japanese script, so it can't be solely blamed on Disney. Most of the actors are fine in their roles (where else can you get the Captain of the Enterprise and the (new) Cmdr. Adama together in one sci-fi related film?).

Nausicaa Of The Valley Of The Wind was originally released under the title "Warriors Of The Wind", which was an old english dub released onto our shores about 20 years ago. There were those of us who enjoyed the old dub (Myself as a kid), while others thought it ruined Hayao Miyazaki's beautiful title. Now, after 20 years, the UNCUT version is now available on DVD, with a new english dub cast (Listened to the dub myself, very well done), and japanese with subtitle format.
The animation, even after all this time, is masterfully restored, and I didn't see any signs of grains or animation errors or glitches on the DVD. Even today, the animation stands out from other Computer Generated anime titles. There is so much detail put into this movie, you can't help but feel you're watching what some anime should titles should be.
The story makes more sense and flows better in this uncut edition, as we see details that were missed in the old dub release.
The music also remains very well intact, and I still remember it vividly in my mind.
Nausicaa Of The Valley Of The Wind is a TRUE anime at heart. This is Hayao Miyazaki's masterpiece, and should NOT be missed by ANY fan of japanese anime, those who like a good story, or those who would love to rekindle old memories. Get this, you WON'T regret it.

I've seen the R2 version, and was blown away. Sure, we're talking a 20 year old animation here, but the story and characters are marvellous. We may not have state of the art CG dodads flying at us, but the quality, and the creators involved are first rate all the way.
The R2 disc featured comments by Kazuyoshi Katayama, a production assistant, later responsible for "The Big O", "Appleseed", and "Argento-soma." It also features the legendary Hideaki Anno. A Key Animator, who designed the Giant Robots for Miyazaki. Anno is, of course, famous for directing "Nadia, Secret of Blue Water", "Wings of Honneamise" and his claim to fame, "Neon Genesis Evangelion."
The music is by Joe Hisaishi, and it has touches that bring to mind things he does later in "Castle in the Sky", "Princess Mononoke" and "Spirited Away." The music was done under tight budget constraints, so they seem to have used a lot of synthesizers. But hey, it's the 80's, so it's understandable. Overall, a must have DVD by one of the great artists of our time, with a veritable who's who of anime supporting him. "Nausicaa" is a wonderful look at Hayao Miyazaki's genius, so obvious in this, his first original film. I would also suggest the Graphic Novels. It took Miyazaki 12 years complete the tale he touches on in "Nausicaa". His true masterpiece.
