Castle in the Sky Gets U.S. Theatrical Run this Month

Some classic Studio Ghibli may be coming to a theater near you in just a few weeks.

It’s being reported today that Castle in the Sky, Studio Ghibli’s 1986 classic feature film, will be hitting U.S. theaters in a limited run courtesy GKIDS, who appear to have taken over the theatrical and home video rights to all of Ghibli’s films from Disney.

Castle in the Sky will play August 27 and 28. The Sunday screenings will feature the English dub, while the Monday screenings will be subtitled.

The film will also be rereleased on Blu-ray and DVD by GKIDS October 31.
