Now available on Blu-ray, DVD, Steelbook, Digital Download and 4K Collector’s Edition!
Here comes the sun, GKIDS Unboxed is back with the international anime sensation, Weathering With You, on 4K Collector’s Edition!
Weathering With You is the latest fantasy romance from anime auteur Makoto Shinkai, known for The Garden of Words, 5 Centimeters Per Second, and the worldwide hit Your Name. This four-disc limited collector’s set is the absolute best way to own Japan’s #1 film of 2019. Not only does it come with everything that you get in the standard Blu-ray/DVD Combo pack, but it comes loaded with goodies exclusive to this edition that will surely bring sunshine to your day! In case you missed it, check out our last Weathering With You Unboxing video for all the details on the Standard and Steelbook editions.
Disc number one is a 4K Ultra High Definition Blu-ray, a first for GKIDS! This UHD Blu-ray is exclusive to the Collector’s Edition set, and lets you experience Weathering With You at home the way Shinkai intended, taking full advantage of 2160p resolution and HDR colors mastered in Dolby Vision. This disc alone makes this set a must-buy for any true anime fan. (Hint hint: if you’re picking up a next-gen video game console this year, it probably has a UHD Blu-ray drive…)
Disc two is a standard Blu-ray with the film in 1080p, as well as every bonus feature included in our Standard and Steelbook editions of Weathering With You. Both the UHD and standard Blu-ray contain audio tracks for the original Japanese language and the English Dub, mastered in DTS-HD 5.1 surround sound. The English version features an all-star cast, including Alison Brie as Natsumi, Lee Pace as Suga, and Riz Ahmed as Takai. Subtitle tracks include English, English SDH, Spanish, and French.
The final Blu-ray disc contains a feature-length documentary on the making of Weathering With You, exclusive to the Collector’s Edition. The documentary takes you on the full journey of Weathering With You, from Shinkai’s original proposal in 2017, to the movie’s release in Japanese theaters in 2019. It’s full of behind-the-scenes moments that will make your heart leap, including a session with RADWIMPS and Toko Miura recording their smash hit “Celebration,” as well as Hodaka and Hina’s Japanese voice actors putting on a live performance for one of the very first theatrical showings. Check out some clips from the documentary below for a sneak peek!
Speaking of RADWIMPS, the Weathering With You Collector’s Set comes with the captivating and catchy soundtrack on CD. This comes with every explosive fan favorite track, including “Grand Escape,” “We’ll Be Alright,” and “Is There Still Anything That Love Can Do?” Take note, the Weathering With You Collector’s Edition is the only way to get the soundtrack on physical CD in North America without importing.
The Collector’s Edition features plenty of physical goodies too. Get lost in gorgeous and rare art and fascinating interviews with the included 104-page book, admire the 14×21 inch mini-poster, and show off your fandom with an adorable decal sticker!
