Ponyo: Blu Ray Review

Ponyo: Blu Ray Review

Ponyo Blu Ray

Rating: G
Released by Madman Entertainment

Finally unleashed on Blu Ray (but frustratingly not in its original Japanese form) Ponyo remains a masterpiece.

A 5-year-old boy, Sosuke (voiced by Frankie Jonas) adopts a goldfish (the titular Ponyo played by Noah Cyrus)when she emerges from the sea one day having escaped from her father, the king of the ocean (voiced by Liam Neeson.)

However their friendship is torn apart as quickly as it's begun after the seas reclaim her. But Ponyo works a way out to become human and return to her friend - yet, her desire could signal the end of the world.

The story's great and the animation looks beautiful on Blu Ray - but it's the wealth of extra features that should be the reason you throw out the DVD and upgrade to this. With intimate looks behind the scenes, interviews with the director and storyboards, plus a meeting between John Lasseter of Pixar and Miyazaki, this is essential stuff.

Just a real shame the Japanese version is not there&

Rating: 9/10
