Ronja’s getting ready to take a step into the world of English dubbing!
Yesterday, the Studio Ghibli International Twitter account tweeted about heading to Los Angeles. Specifically, the account mentioned heading to the City of Angels for a recording session at Studiopolis.
In addition, the LinkedIn account for Studio Ghibli International chief Geoffrey Wexler was recently updated to confirm localization for Ronja, The Robber’s Daughter and Only Yeserday.
Only Yesterday is a 1991 film directed by Isao Takahata (Grave of the Fireflies, My Neighbors the Yamadas). A subtitled version of the film aired on Turneer Classic Movies in 2006, as part of the channel’s month-long salute to Studio Ghibli. To date, it’s the only theatrical film to not be released on home video in North America.
Ronja, the Robber’s Daughter is a 26-episode TV series that ran from October 2014 through March 2015. The Goro Miyazaki-led project was a co-production between Studio Ghibli and Polygon Pictures.
In the west, Ronja, the Robber’s Daughter was licensed by UK-based Serious Lunch.
