Studio Ghibli fans will be very excited to to hear about the Japanese Blu-ray release of Laputa, the Castle in the Sky. The high definition 1080p release is due out on 22nd December 2010. Like the Japanese blu-ray release of Nausicaa, it should be region free, meaning it'll play on any blu-ray player, including the PS3. It will have English subtitles, but it does not appear to have an English dub track.
Details as follows:
English Japanese French Cantonese Mandarin Korean
Japanese: DTS HD 2.0 Surround
Cantonese: Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround
French: Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround
German: Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround

It retails for 6800 Japanese Yen, which is about 82 US Dollars or 52 Pounds (GBP / UK).
JBox/JList,Otaku.com and CDJapan are currently taking pre-orders for Castle in the Sky on Blu-ray.
