So it's not just film festivals, The Wind Rises will be getting proper releases in the English speaking world and they'll be happening by October in the US. Presumably that means they'll be out in Europe around June time.
Snarky title aside, this film will have some pretty heavy subject matter so it's nice to see Disney putting its weight behind it. Without having seen it, it's a heavy subject and deserves the best voice work it can get; and if it actually gets proper marketing and shows up in cinemas then that's just gravy.
Until then, I'm off to see what else is on.
