Hayao Miyazaki’s Ponyo has been released on DVD and Blu-Ray (March 2nd). This is the first Miyazaki film to hit Blu-Ray so it should be pure eye candy. Ponyo is based on the Little Mermaid as it’s about a 5-year old boy who meets a goldfish princess that wants to be human.
The runtime on Ponyo is 101 minutes and our users seem to love it. While Ponyo only did $15 million here in the United States, it did $185 million elsewhere. It has won 6 awards including Best Animated Feature from a number of associates.
To help celebrate this release here is the Ponyo theme song by Noah Cyrus (yes, Miley’s sister) and Frankie Jonas.
