After last week’s huge news from Manga Entertainment confirming that they’d be bringing Ghost in the Shell: The New Movie to the UK, they’ve announced their latest acquisition from the same original mind. The sci-fi visionary Mamoru Oshii’s live-action Garm Wars: The Last Druid will arrive on March 14th, and will retail on DVD for £19.99 and on Blu-ray for £24.99.
Oshii’s first ever English-language film, but still in partnership with Production I.G, holds the same profound and lonesome philosophy we’ve all come to recognise and love his works for. Manga UK have described its story, starring Aliens’ Lance Henriksen, Mélanie St-Pierre of Assassin’s Creed and Kevin Durand of LOST, as follows:
In a world where clone soldiers from three military tribes are locked in a perpetual battle of air, land and technology, one clone is separated from the battle and finds herself on the run with a group of unlikely companions.
