Preview: Expelled From Paradise (Blu-Ray)

Aniplex of America announced at their industry panel at Anime Boston their plans to release the theatrical feature animation EXPELLED FROM PARADISE on both limited and standard edition Blu-rays on June 5th. Pre-orders for both SKUs have begun on the official website.

This original science-fiction film directed by Seiji Mizushima (FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST, GUNDAM 00) and written by Gen Urobuchi (PUELLA MAGI ADOKA MAGICA, FATE/ZERO), two of the most prominent creators of the Japanese anime industry, garnered much praise from fans in Japan when it debuted in theaters last November. Even with a limited theatrical release, the film saw over 17,000 attendees within the first two days earning over 29 million yen. Aniplex of America has also screened the film across the U.S. last December with the producer Koichi Noguchi as a special guest at the L.A. premiere. By integrating the most state-of-the-art 3DCG technology with the traditional “cel-look” animation, EXPELLED FROM PARADISE presents unique characters and dynamic action scenes that any sci-fi fan would enjoy.

This domestic release will feature an all-star cast including Wendee Lee (COWBOY BEBOP, BLUE EXORCIST) as Angela Balzac, Steve Blum (COWBOY BEBOP, DURARARA) as Dingo and Johnny Yong Bosch (DURARARA, BLUE EXORCIST) as Frontier Setter. The Limited Edition Blu-ray features both the original Japanese and English audio with English and Spanish subtitles. The bonuses include “The Making of EXPELLED FROM PARADISE”, trailers, a deluxe booklet, a pin-up card and the box featuring the illustration by Masatsugu Saito (Character Design).

The EXPELLED FROM PARADISE Limited Edition Blu-ray will be available at a limited quantity and sold only while supplies last. Both editions of the feature will be available for sale in the U.S., Canada, Central and South Americas only.
