GKIDS has announced a brand new Blu-ray release of Future Boy Conan: The Complete Series.

The series was the 1978 directorial debut for the legendary Hayao Miyazaki, who would go on to found Studio Ghibli and direct classics such as Spirited Away and Ponyo. The series has never officially been released in North America until now, and the four-disc collection will feature a 4K restoration of all 26 episodes as well as a new English language dub for the first time.

Check out the Future Boy Conan: The Complete Series trailer below:

“Twenty years ago, a terrible war fought with magnetic weapons caused the earth’s axis to tilt, and earthquakes and tidal waves destroyed civilization,” reads the official synopsis. “Conan is born into this new world, raised by his grandfather on an isolated island. But his life is forever changed when a mysterious girl named Lana washes ashore, pursued by shadowy operatives who seek to use her in a new scheme to control what’s left of the world.”

Pre-orders for Future Boy Conan are available now for $40.98, with copies set to ship on November 16.
