by on November 11, 2005

Toon Zone News now has official confirmation regarding TCM’s previously announced plans to feature Ghibli movies during the month of January.

Each Thursday in January, TCM will present classic Ghibli animation. Each film will be presented first in its English-dubbed format, with an encore presented later with the original Japanese-language track. The only exception to this rule will be Only Yesterday, which will only be presented in the original Japanese-language track.

TCM’s telecast of each movie will be introduced by animation director John Lasseter (Toy Story), who directed the English-language track on Spirited Away. He is also executive vice president, creative, and a founding member of Pixar Animation Studios.

The following is the complete, official schedule of the Ghibli presentations on TCM:
