    Hi,

    I was wondering if anyone can help me out here, please. My local arthouse cinema is currently running a Studie Ghibli Japanese anime season, and one of the films shown, was this hilarious and superbly comic film about a large gang of raccoons fighting to save their world from extinction by humans. :D

    The film is known under various titles, however, the following are the most common. (Please note the spellings, though!)
    - Pom Poko: The Great Raccoon Battle
    - Pom Poko: The Great Raccoon War
    - Defenders Of The Forest
    - Ponpoko: Defenders Of The Forest
    - Heisei Tanuki Gassen Ponpoko

    :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

    The move was directed by Isao Takahata, and was made in Japan in 1994.

    Having checked sites like www.sazuma.com and www.cdjapan.co.jp I am having no luck in tracking down this movie, on DVD. Do any on you folks know if it has ever been released, or if it will be released in the near future? :confused:

    Ideally, I'm looking for an English-Subtitled version, rather than a dubbed edition, but would accept the latter, if need be.

    Any help, would be very gratefully received! ;)

    Cheers,

    Pooch
