Q - Any more information on Violet Evergarden?
A - Things are taking longer than anticipated but things are well under way. Nothing solid to share but is a high priority. Wanting to get it out this year. Hopefully more to share in the coming months. It will be worth the wait.
Q - Inuyasha updates?
A - Was announced back in October. Streaming on All4 right now. First Season will be coming out on Blu-ray late in 2020.
Q - Any potential 4K releases?
A - A question they get a lot. 4K is a pretty new medium and doesn't have a big install base. It's something they'd like to do when a certain title comes along that makes sense. Nothing to report at the moment,
