The Boy and the Beast are being released! On DVD and limited edition Blu-ray! Pre-orders for July 28th.


The Boy and the Beast is the story of an unlike (title-giving) couple of human and beast that not only learns to respect each other, but also to complement one another's inner void left by events in the past.

Grief-Stricken after the death of his mother, nine-year-old boy Ren decides to live on the streets of Shibuya district rather than with his legal guardians or alienated father. At the same time in the Beast Kingdom, the Beast Lord has decided to retire and Kumametsu, a gruff, lazy beast warrior, has a chance to become his successor if he manages to train a disciple. As fate wants it, the two meet and become master and pupil with consequences not only for them, but also both realms...

Beautiful, hand-drawn animation supplement one of the most rewarding movie experiences of recent anime. If you are feeling a gaping hole in your heart where a new Hayao Miyazaki movie should be, this will make the loss more bearable!

The HK release of the movie comes in two editions: the regular DVD and a limited edition Blu-ray. So if you're going for the latter, better reserve a copy soon! The Blu-ray comes with three booklets and an additional disc with over 150 minutes of extras. Pre-orders until July, 25th. Release date is July, 28th.
