Despite Studio Ghilbi's statement that Japan will be the first country to see their films on Blu-ray Disc, Dutch distributor Paradiso Home Entertainment announced Spirited Away (Sen to Chihiro no kamikakushi) for November. According to DVDInfo.be and bol.com, Hayao Miyazaki's Oscar-winning feature will be released on Blu-ray Disc on November 19th with Dutch and French subtitles, so even if this will really hit the shelves it won't be of much use for most Ghibli fans...

[thanks to AnimeOnBlu for the heads up!]
[Oct 19th] Update: Peter from GhibliWorld.com informed me that Paradiso will only release an upscaled version taken from their current master on Blu-ray Disc. meh!
