Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

Jiro (voiced by Joseph Gordon-Levitt) dreams of flying and designing beautiful airplanes, inspired by the famous Italian aeronautical designer Caproni (voiced by Stanley Tucci). Nearsighted from a young age and thus unable to become a pilot, Jiro joins a major Japanese engineering company in 1927 and becomes one of the world’s most innovative and accomplished airplane designers.

The film chronicles much of his life, depicting key historical events including The Great Kanto earthquake of 1923, the Great Depression, the tuberculosis epidemic, and Japan’s plunge into war. Jiro meets and falls in love with Nahoko (voiced by Emily Blunt) and grows and cherishes his friendship with his colleague Honjo (voiced by John Krasinski).

a must have if u r ghibli fan

Its such a great story ,it takes place on the world war 2 at japan , the protagonist of the film Jiro Horikoshi is strogly passionate about airplanes and his dream is becoming a designer of airplanes, you dont need to have a love for airplanes to watch it , the steelbook design is good as well , i personally got invested by the main character and his crazy passion that he has about them and all those great visuals are portaying it splendidly, i would say the only negative is that the romance was too rushed , other than that it is an amazing story with its beautiful and its sad momments, its going to get sold out soon and all those ghibli limited edition steelbooks are not going to be continued by the manufacturers, its good time to buy it from there because zavvis price on this one is cheap, ive got my own some months ago and am proud to have it

I love it!

I love collecting steelbooks and Zavvi and such a great selection! This steelbook was so great and it now one of many of my Studio Ghibli steelbooks! Would 100% recommend buying :)

stunning

gorgeous anime - left in tears - beautiful story - gorgeous scenery - steelbook good quality - fits in great with my collection.

Another stylish ghibli steelbook

Been collecting the Ghibli steelbooks from day one & the Wind Rises is another fantastic edition to the collection.

Great movie but some issue with the steelbook

The movie looks wonderful and the steelbook does too, except the interior image on mine is pixelated and zoomed in which is a real shame.. I don't know if I just got a faulty one but the movie itself is wonderful.

Amazingly sad

An all round amazing movie with breathtaking visuals. Told like a fantasy in real life. the steelbook is also very nice.

Great Artwork

great artwork and amazing last film by the great Hayao Miyazaki
