“Goodbye, Don Glees!” Comes to Blu-ray™ + DVD and Digital Platforms this Winter

The Directorial Debut from Atsuko Ishizuka Trails Ahead to Blu-ray™ + DVD December 27 and on Digital Platforms December 13

 

 

The coming-of-age anime film Goodbye, Don Glees! will arrive in a Blu-Ray™ + DVD combo release on December 27 and become available on major digital platforms on December 13 from GKIDS with distribution by Shout! Factory. This touching animation adventure features an interview with director Atsuko Ishizuka and is now available for pre-order at GKIDS.com .

Produced by the acclaimed Studio Madhouse, Goodbye, Don Glees! is the first original feature from writer/director, Atsuko Ishizuka, who previously directed the widely lauded series A Place Further Than The Universe, and the feature No Game, No Life: Zero. The vibrantly animated picture screened in competition at various major film festivals, including Annecy International Film Festival, Tokyo International Film Festival and Fantasia Fest. The film stars stars famed Japanese voice actors Ayumu Murase (Shoyo Hinata,” Haikyu!!”), Natsuki Hanae (Tanjiro Kamado, “Demon Slayer”), Kana Hanazawa (Akane Tsunemori, “Psycho-Pass”), and Yuuki Kaji (Eren Jaeger, “Attack on Titan”) in its original Japanese language version. 

Teen misfits Roma, Toto, and Drop call themselves the “Don Glees,” an informal name for their backyard adventures. One day, when the trio gets blamed for a nearby forest fire, they set off into the woods to prove their innocence. As disaster strikes their expedition, tensions flare between the friends as they realize that growing up has taken them on wildly different paths in life. 

Director Atsuko Ishizuka follows up her critically acclaimed series A Place Further Than the Universe with her first original feature film. With luminescent animation and lush backdrops, Goodbye, Don Glees! is a tender coming-of-age story about the fearlessness of being young and the bittersweet journey of self-discovery.
