Disney Lists "Princess Mononoke" DVD

Release has been out of print since 2011

The North American handling of Studio Ghibli movies has been shifting to GKids, who have been picking up their new titles, like Poppy Hill.

In 2011, after online retailers began listing Hayao Miyazaki's 1997 Princess Mononoke as out of print or unavailable, Disney confirmed they no longer have the rights to distribute the movie.

 

Whether Disney is actually able to fulfill orders has not been confirmed, but the fact that Princess Mononoke is only offered through the movie club and not other retailers suggests that the listing might not be accidental.
