GKIDS This series was released before Ghibli (a studio founded by Miyazaki back in 1985). The series will arrive at an unknown date later in the year with all new 4K restorations and English dub.
Future Boy Conan is a 26-episode series that adapts Alexander Key’s children’s book The Incredible Tide. GKIDS says that the sci-fi adventure series was set twenty years after a civil war. Conan is born into this new world, on a remote island. He is raised by his grandfather. According to the site, Conan’s life is forever altered when a mysterious girl called Lana arrives on the shore. She is pursued by shadowy agents who want to use her to control the rest of the world.
GKIDS President David Jesteadt stated that “With a beautiful restoration, now’s the perfect time for American fans Hayao Miyazaki, to experience this classic series as it was meant,”
Miyazaki’s most well-known films include My Neighbor Totoro and Kiki’s Delivery Services, Howl’s Moving Castle, Spirited Away, which is Japan’s highest-grossing film.
