REVIEW: Porco Rosso, Pom Poko, and Tales From Earthsea (Blu-ray)
Posted by Scott R. Garrigus

REVIEW:  Porco Rosso, Pom Poko, and Tales From Earthsea (Blu-ray)As with most of the other titles in its catalog, Disney is continuing the Blu-ray conversion of its Studio Ghibli roster with the release of Porco Rosso, Pom Poko, and Tales From Earthsea. These titles were originally released in 1992, 1994, and 2006, respectively and fans can now enjoy them in high-definition. Released as Blu-ray combo packs, fans also get the films on DVD. While Porco Rosso, Pom Poko, and Tales From Earthsea share the same fantastic, hand-drawn animation as all the Studio Ghibli titles, they are quite different when it comes to story and content.

Porco Rosso
In English, Porco Rosso translates to Crimson Pig. It is a story about a fighter pilot who becomes a bounty hunter that tracks down sea pirates and brings them to justice. But this isn’t just any old fighter pilot... he is a walking, talking pig. More accurately, he is a pig who was once a man that was cursed by his past. During the war, his squadron was ambushed and he was the sole survivor. This event made him feel so ashamed, that he felt that he no longer deserved to be human, and because his belief was so strong, he was magically transformed and destined to live the rest of his life as a pig...
