Good to see this film finally has a stateside theatrical release date! I had recently started to wonder whether it would ever see the light of projectors here, at all.

The title change is expected, but still clumsy-sounding. :|

Separate American and British dubs is unexpected .. but it does happen with anime dubs, sometimes; it's just not 'standard practice' for Disney.

It's also distribution, and the fact that if Disney didn't produce the dub, it's cheaper to make one in-house than to pay royalties for someone else's.
Which is why we also have two Totoro dubs, one for Fox and one for Disney.

Yeah; I just noticed that the UK dub has no 'Disney' branding .. so, it likely is from a different production/distribution company.

Wasn't sure if there was a thread for this:

I haven't seen it yet, it gets released in Australia in February I think. Not sure if we are getting the American dub or the English dub though. I've had the soundtrack since it was released in Japan and it is beautiful and the theme song is just wonderful

I saw Beauty & the Beast today, and finally saw the trailer for this. Perhaps it was just the way that the trailer was cut, but the voices seemed very..... I dunno.... off?? :? Or it could've just been that the dialogue was too bland. I really hope this doesn't mean that they've dumbed it down for the American dub.

Just a reminder that the Blu-ray is around for ordering in the UK, for those multizone people that might like to compare. :)

It seems Australia gets the UK voices. Which I'm happy about as personally they sound better than the US voices, basedsolely upon the trailers. Opened this week, but unfortunately since I don't live in a captial city I have buckley's chance of catching it until the eventual DVD release.

(William F. Buckley? I didn't know he usually went in for those kinds of movies.) :wink:

This movie is poison for your children! Don't go!

Uh, yeah, The Borrowers (written in 1951) is "pro-Occupy Wall Street"?
Okay, NOW they're just the kid burping at the table, after getting all the media attention for that Muppets stunt... :roll:
(And do they honestly believe The Lorax is going to have the same tree-hugging message as the book?--No, really, do they?)

Either that, or with the election coming up, they're trying to bring back the same "Evil Liberal Hollywood" card the Southern Baptists used to play, and can't remember which ones were Disney and which weren't.

Of course, Media Matters makes Fox News look tame. Both sides have their biased outlets. But neither side will admit it!

Be careful not to get too political here!

Utterly absurd. I can't undertsand anyone making that connection.

Incidentally, I found the movie overly quiet, though I'd stop short of saying it was boring. I liked it better than Earthsea, at least, but it's certainly a lesser Ghibli film. It's nicely told, with lots of nice touches, but there's really not much to the story.
