[UPDATED: 18th Jan. 2017. See F.A.Q. section below for details.]
One of the most recurring questions we’ve been receiving since Your Name arrived in UK cinemas a month ago was ‘where/when can I pre-order it?’ Well we are delighted to tell you that can pre-order it right now from Amazon.co.uk
NOTE: The date listed on Amazon is strictly a placeholder.
But PLEASE make sure you read the important information below.
Now we want to point out that at the time of writing it is very early days when it comes to planning our release. So we want to take a moment to highlight some important details about the release, as things stand today (Wednesday 21st December 2016). So here is a quick F.A.Q. for you –
F.A.Q. about our home video release of Your Name
What’s the release date?
UPDATED: March 2017.
At this time we can’t confirm this. The date is it simply to be confirmed. This is due to holdbacks in Japan as part of the terms of our licensing agreement. However, we want to stress that although we are hoping and are working to make it available before this, the latest it will be released is February 2018. We are hoping it will be earlier than this though.
Obviously once we know more we’ll make it known. but wanted to stress this point now. Until you hear us announce a release date please take anything you may hear or read from elsewhere with a large grain of salt.
Will there be an Ultimate Edition release?
At this time we don’t know. Releasing an Ultimate Edition for the film is something we would absolutely LOVE to do, but we have to wait and see what materials will be available to us. We in good conscience could not get a listing on Amazon.co.uk unless we were 100% sure we can definitely release an Ultimate Edition. We are huge fans of the film ourselves and believe me when I say if we can release an Ultimate Edition, we will.
However, we can tell you that should an Ultimate Edition be possible, it will be in addition to the already listed DVD, Blu-ray and Collector’s Edition Blu-ray+DVD versions you can see on Amazon UK.
WILL IT INCLUDE BOTH THE ENGLISH AND JAPANESE AUDIO?
Yes! No matter which version of Your Name you purchase it will include both the English language and original Japanese language audio with subtitles.
You can see the trailer for both versions below –
UPDATE, 18th January 2017 – Following the news that this week the North American theatrical run of Your Name will include a soundtrack with RADWIMPS, the group who wrote the soundtrack, performing all the songs in the film in English, we want to make it known that this version of this film will also be included in our home video release. So there will be the following language options in every version of our home video release –
- Original Japanese with English subtitles
- English language with original Japanese version of the soundtrack
- English language with English version of the soundtrack
WHAT WILL THE EXTRA CONTENTS BE?
At this time we can’t confirm this as we need to see what materials will be available to us. (Please refer to Ultimate Edition questions above for reference.)
WHAT WILL THE PACKAGING FOR EACH VERSION BE LIKE?
Again, until we have the materials delivered to us we cannot answer this right now. But as soon as we know we’ll be sure to make it known.
It’s going to be a while before we can release the film, but don’t forget you can still catch it in the cinema right now! Book your tickets at YourNameTheMovie.co.uk
