Shout! Factory and Eleven Arts Anime Studio Present Liz and the Blue Bird on Blu-Ray + DVD Combo Pack, DVD & Digital Download March 5th, 2019

Weekend Roundup: The Prodigy, Autographs, Blu-ray announcements, Rocky & Bullwinkle 40

The stunning anime feature Liz and the Blue Bird will be released on Blu-ray™ + DVD combo pack, DVD and digital download on March 5, 2019 from ELEVEN ARTS Anime Studio and Shout! Factory. Liz and the Blue Bird makes its way to home video following its premiere at Annecy International Film Festival this June and its North American theatrical release in November. This release is presented in Japanese with subtitles, and with an English dub. Fans who order from shoutfactory.com will receive an exclusive, unique film strip, available while supplies last.

Liz and the Blue Bird comes from the creators of the critically acclaimed A Silent Voice (40th Japan Academy Award, Best Animated Feature Film), including director Naoko Yamada and writer Reiko Yoshida. The film’s director Naoko Yamada here presents her fourth feature film with a subtle yet entrancing brilliance in this complex look at friendship and growing up. Nominated for a Satellite Award for Best Animated Feature, Liz and the Blue Bird was also recently named a best anime movie of 2018 by IGN.

Liz and the Blue Bird has been adapted from the popular YA novel series Sound! Euphonium by Ayano Takenda and is considered a side sequel to the anime series of the same name.  

Mizore Yoroizuka plays the oboe, and Nozomi Kasaki plays the flute in Kita Uji High School’s concert band. Mizore is shy and soft-spoken, while her best friend, Nozomi, is outgoing. The two girls grow closer as they practice for their last duet before graduating, a piece called “Liz And The Blue Bird.” However, the impending separation may be more than their friendship can handle. Interspersed with their story is the fantasy tale of Liz, who like Mizore, seeks a friendship that may be too hard to hold onto in this beautiful coming-of-age story.
