StudioCanal are thrilled to announce the release of an English re-dub of Studio Ghibli's 1991 classic ONLY YESTERDAY, and a brand new clip which features the voices of Daisy Ridley (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and Dev Patel (The Man Who Knew Infinity,Slumdog Millionaire).
ONLY YESTERDAY will be in cinemas this Friday 3rd June as part of the STUDIO GHIBLI FOREVER retrospective season, and will be available to own for the first time ever on Blu-Ray from August 15th.
ONLY YESTERDAY follows Taeko (Ridley), unmarried at 27 (much to the chagrin of her friends and family) on her annual visit to see relatives in the countryside, as she reflects on her childhood and memories and forges a relationship with Toshio (Patel), wondering if she has been true to the dreams of her childhood self. Re-dubbed in English and showing in UK cinemas for the first time to celebrate the film's 25th anniversary, ONLY YESTERDAY is an animated masterpiece of reflection, as relevant today as it ever was. It will be available to own on Blu-Ray for the first time from August 15th.
Full details of the retrospective season, which along with ONLY YESTERDAY also includes the June 10th release of brand new Studio Ghibli film WHEN MARNIE WAS THERE are available at www.studioghibliforever.com. WHEN MARNIE WAS THERE will be the last film to feature the incredible animation work of Makiko Futaki, who sadly passed away last week.
Its 1982, and Taeko (Daisy Ridley) is 27 years old, unmarried, and has lived her whole life in Tokyo. She decides to visit her relatives in the countryside, and as the train travels through the night, memories flood back of her younger years: the first immature stirrings of romance, the onset of puberty, and the frustrations of math and boys. At the station she is met by young farmer Toshio (Dev Patel), and the encounters with him begin to reconnect her to forgotten longings. In lyrical switches between the present and the past, Taeko contemplates the arc of her life, and wonders if she has been true to the dreams of her childhood self.
From Academy Award-nominated director Isao Takahata (The Tale of The Princess Kaguya ) and general producer Hayao Miyazaki, Only Yesterday is a masterpiece of time and tone, rich with humour and stirring emotion, and beautifully animated by one of the worlds most revered animation studios. Critically acclaimed but never before released in UK cinemas, the film is receiving a new, Studio Ghibli-produced, English-language version in celebration of its 25th anniversary
