From The Nerdist:

Due out exclusively from Amazon on November 17th, The Collected Works of Hayao Miyazaki contains each of the maestro’s eleven feature films: Lupin the Third: The Castle of Cagliostro, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, Castle in the Sky, My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Porco Rosso, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle, Ponyo, and The Wind Rises.

I already own all of these on several formats but I will definitely be acquiring this collection. Even more than Pixar, when my family just wants to enjoy and appreciate our downtime, we turn on a Miyazaki movie and eat some popcorn. It's foundational to how we see the world now. The set includes TV series that will be fertile ground for us to explore together.

What I found particularly interesting about the announcement is that it is exclusive to Amazon at launch. That's a huge coup. Not Walmart. Not The Disney Store. Not, even iTunes has this collection.

Also a huge win for The Nerdist, getting this "exclusive."
