Sanrio's Remastered "Nutcracker Fantasy" Gets BD / DVD release

Enhanced version of 1979 stop-motion animation film features new vocal cast, 3D conversion


In November of 2014, Sanrio released a remastered version of their 1979 stop-motion animation film, Nutcracker Fantasy. This new version, directed by Sebastian Masuda, featured a 3D post-conversion, new performances by a new generation of voice actors, and new music, including the theme song “Oyasumi” by Kyary Pamyu Pamyu.




Now the remastered version of Nutcracker Fantasy is receiving a deluxe home video release in Japan, with special features such as directory's commentary, a behind-the-scenes “making of” featurette about the 3D conversion process, a video documenting the history of Sanrio, and cast and crew interviews.



The “Luxury” Bluray boxed set includes special packaging and retails for 5800 yen ($48.26 US). There is also a regular Bluray version for 3800 yen ($31.62 US) and a DVD version for 2800 ($23.30 US) yen.


All three versions hit Japanese stores on June 17, 2015.
