Napping Princess on Blu-ray + DVD Review and Giveaway
I didn’t know what to expect when reviewing this movie with my 8 year old. She was really excited to watch a movie about Sci-Fi. I started with the extra features in the DVD and was surprised when the trailer was only in Japanese. I was happy to find out that the movie was translated for us. When asking my daughter what she liked the most about the movie, she said when the princess was napping. The movie has lots of color
and the artistic styles are unique to what you would be use to if you watch and read a lot of anime.
We are so pleased to be able to do a giveaway so you can watch this movie on your own! This post also contains affiliate links.
From visionary director Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex and Eden of the East) comes a sci-fi fantasy that effortlessly weaves together the rapidly evolving technology of today’s world with the fantastic imagination of the next generation, which was nominated for Best Animated Feature – Independent, at this year’s Annie Awards.
The year is 2020, three days before the opening of the Tokyo Olympics. While she should be studying for her exams, Kokone Morikawa often dozes off, entering a dream-world called Heartland full of fantastic motorized contraptions. But when her father, a talented but mysterious mechanic, is kidnapped 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, uncovering a trail of clues to her father’s disappearance and ultimately a surprising revelation about Kokone’s family.
With an ambitious mix of multilayered action, whimsical characters and inventive machines, Napping Princess is a genre- and universe-blending film that shows that following your dreams is sometimes the best way to discover your past.
Available in a Blu-ray/DVD combo and on EST/VOD, Napping Princess is now available for pre-order.
