About Napping Princess Blu-ray/DVD

In Napping Princess the year is 2020, three days before the opening of the Tokyo Olympics. While she should be studying for her exams, Kokone Morikawa is often dozing off, stuck between reality and a dream-world full of fantastic motorized contraptions. But after her father, a talented but mysterious mechanic, is arrested for stealing technology from a powerful corporation, it’s up to Kokone and her childhood friend Morio to save him. Together they realize that Kokone’s dream-world holds the answers to the mystery behind the stolen tech, and they embark on a journey that traverses dreams and reality, city and country, and past and present. Their mission uncovers a trail of clues to her father’s disappearance and ultimately a surprising revelation about Kokone’s family.

Fine , I guess

by -

The concept of "Dream World affected Real World and vice versa" actually is good idea and have big potential to be explorer
But this movie failed to explain how this concept works
Maybe because this movie targeted for family and kids so they ignored to explain the basic ruler of "Napping Princess" world?
The animation is not great either and the animators look too lazy for created different expression for kokone face
How about the story? Predictable

The only thing i like from this movie : MECHA BATTLE
I did not watch the PV before so this really suprising me

My suggestion :
Just watch Ghibli movies or Satoshi Kon' PAPRIKA or Christopher Nolan' INCEPTION instead waste your time for this one

4 star rating out of 5

A worthy, all-ages follow-up to Satoshi Kon's features


I disagree with the previous reviewer. The animation in the film is NOT bad. It's about average level for a feature
The story does go over some ground covered by Satoshi Kon's films, most obviously Perfect Blue and Paprika, but it is its own entity and solidly all-ages. This one's safe for kids but it's not saccharine, either.
There is the implication of a very powerful AI interacting with the main character of the story, the "napping princess," BUT there is a twist in the dream cycles that gets revealed later in the film. Very Hitchcockian development there!
This was an overlooked feature (like Satellite Girl) not carried as widely as other Shout titles in store. Basically, it was at Wal Mart for about 2-3 weeks and vanished. It didn't deserve that fate!
In addition to competently-directed animation, the English dub is excellently cast and directed which has been the usual case for Shout/GKids releases for several years now. So, yes, fernando, this film has a dub!
