About Escaflowne The Movie Blu-ray/DVD

In Escaflowne the Movie Hitomi Kanzaki is depressed. She feels isolated from her friends and family, and wants nothing more than to disappear. From her melancholy, the otherworldly presence of Lord Folken is summoned, and she is spirited away to the foreign world of Gaea.

 On Gaea, Hitomi is both feared and worshiped as the legendary Winged Goddess: a powerful being who can call to life the mystical Dragon Armor, Escaflowne. 

Hitomi is bewildered by the strange new world, where ships fly through the air, cat women walk and talk, and her apparent role as a goddess makes her a prized possession for several nefarious organizations. Hitomi finds a kindred spirit in the vengeful and headstrong King Van, who has sworn an oath of revenge against the Black Dragon Clan, who destroyed Van's kingdom. Now, Van lives by the sword. And with Hitomi by his side, Van and Escaflowne will either lead the world of Gaea to harmony, or destruction.

A Beautiful but Dark Retelling of the Escaflowne Series

by -

Escaflowne the Movie is a dark retelling of the Escaflowne series. Be warned, it is more intense and violent than the series so do not watch it if these bother you. It is a beautiful movie with an interesting story that deals with concepts of sorrow and depression. It is not essential to have watched the series first but you may get more out of it if you have.

I thought this movie was beautiful when I first watched it but this is an excellent remaster. It makes the darker scenes easier to see without ruining the feel although this can make the movie seem more intense as the violent scenes are clearer. Personally, I love the visual quality of this release. If you own the original DVD definitely consider upgrading to Blu-ray.

Unlike earlier DVD releases, this release doesn’t have any special features just trailers and the promo video. I was glad to discover that it contains all three audio options: the Japanese version, the Ocean Dub (2004) and the Funimation Dub (2016).
