    Both tracks are in DD 5.1 - dont waste your time with the awful Eng lang track - unless you have kids to keep quiet. The Japanese track is very good. Must say the film is another Classic from Miyazaki - amazing he can still keep making Classic after Classic.

    The R3 has a DTS track as well as the DD5.1

    Fantastic film I hope you enjoy it as much as I did, 1 of my top 10 films of all time.

    DTS ES to be precise forgot if full or halfbitrate.
    The film is great and I'm glad that the R3 has no dub (except for a mandarin dub or so) so that nobody will ever get the stupid idea of listening to it.

    My god, watched this last night. It was the absolute nuts! It had a multitude of emotions and really was incredible to watch unfolding. Very much Alice In Wonderland for a new generation.
