Famed background artist and art director, Kazuo Oga, whose exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo was well received, will be releasing a DVD and Blu Ray on the exhibit.
Footage will contain information on Totoro's woods, commentary from his contemporaries, all 600 works that were displayed at the Museum, and the making of the cover paintings.
For those who could not make it to Tokyo for the special exhibit, the DVD and Blu Ray release is a beautiful alternative. The DVD will run 3990 yen, Blu Ray 6090 yen starting December 19th.
Another special bonus will be a Studio Ghibli matchbox- displaying Oga's painting of Totoro in a deep slumber (shown above).
