The releases is scheduled in UK, France and Germany for September. Guess it will be the same for the US and Canada.
But as anime companies currently announcing their July titles, it's no surprise Weathering With You wasn't announced yet.

They skipped the 4K release of Cats, but considering how that movie was a laughingstock of a box office bomb, they probably did it to not lose money.
Such a shame considering that it has a 4K DI.
And yet Dolittle, another massive box office bomb, was given a 4K release. Ironically, it wasn't even a 4K DI like Cats was.

Also, Universal rarely releases foreign films in 4K, they only recently did so for Parasite, since it won four Oscars including Best Picture.
Hopefully, Universal/GKIDS' other foreign films (especially the Studio Ghibli films, Mary and the Witch's Flower, Mirai and Weathering With You) get 4K releases just like Parasite.
MFKZ once had a 4K listing but it never got a 4K release and Parasite was Universal's first foreign film released in 4K.

Itís not guaranteed that Universal will release Weathering With You on behalf of GKIDS. Itís still very possible that the home media release could end up being handled by Shout Factory.

Most of GKIDSí Studio Ghibli titles (except for Grave of the Fireflies and the titles originally released by Universal Home Entertainment) are handled physically by Shout Factory, and all the GKIDS Studio Ghibli titles (except Grave) are handled digitally/VOD by Shout Factory (including the titles originally distributed physically by Universal).

Fireworks and Lu Over the Wall (both films distributed by Shout Factory on physical and digital/VOD) have the Universal logo on their Netflix streaming versions despite the fact Universal didnít handle home media distribution for both films. Granted, itís possible GKIDS licensed the subscription streaming/pay TV rights separately to Universal.

Although I would prefer Universal to release the film for GKIDS so that it comes with a Movies Anywhere digital code (which Shout Factory doesnít participate in), itís possible that we are more likely to see a Steelbook or Collectorís Edition release with Shout Factory. Shout Factory is releasing Steelbooks for Howlís Moving Castle, Ponyo, and Promare this month. Although I admit I would be more interested in a North American Collectorís Edition like the earlier Studio Ghibli Collectorís Editions (with a booklet and soundtrack) that Shout Factory released.

Oh, God. Please, not Shout Factory. I've got nothing against them but they'd take way too frickin' long.

If it is Shout, then the video compression would be better than if Universal did it.

For some reason I keep thinking this is out in Japan and was worried that my steelbook didn't ship.

The GKids Facebook page says they are working hard in finalizing the details of the blu Ray release. So we should hear something soon.

I'm probably just going to pickup a standard Blu-ray release for this movie. I'm not going to bother with anything fancy - I really didn't get much out of this movie, it was pretty meh for me. Your Name was so much better.

The coronavirus had shut theatres down when it was to be shown here, so I haven't seen it yet, unlike Your Name.

I was guessing that disc would be Weathering With You for GKids, but it isn't. They could do a UHD of it, but if so, Justin wouldn't be doing it.

Universal is doing a 4K of Parasite so Weathering With You probably has a chance if it's with Universal (Shout! Factory only did 4K for some documentaries but they are going to release The Deer Hunter in 4K, too bad they haven't done any 4K releases of the John Carpenter movies).
Hopefully, this means Universal would also re-release Mary and the Witch's Flower in 4K.

For those interested in preordering the Japanese editions of Weathering with You, it appears that Amazon JP is temporarily restricting new preorders (of items) to US adddresses.

As usual nice "japanese" bitrate

Do the UHD get any benefit for this besides expanded color range? No extra audiotrack like Mary/Innocence right? Some say HDR was a benefit on last movie and other say it really wasn't.

Perhaps lossless audio for the English theme song version. It's lossy on the BD because of bitrate limitations.

Guess it will ship this week. Just checked my credit card notes and saw they reserved the amount for Weathering With You. Also forward to receive it.
