If ever you're looking to get someone into the world of anime, a film by Hayao Miyazaki is usually your best bet. Miyazaki is one of the co-founders of Studio Ghibli, and has produced such works as Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke. Late 2014, Miyazaki had announced his impending retirement, (but will continue to work on short films) and with it, his move away from Studio Ghibli. 

While some fans of his work mourn that they will never see anything new, a collection of Miyazaki's 11 most important films are being put together in a Blu-Ray box set for die-hard fans. The collection comes courtesy of Disney, which will make it available to purchase online, from the likes of Amazon, as of November 17th. 

The box set includes films such as My Neighbour Totoro, Porco Rosso, Howl's Moving Castle and the two aforementioned films above. The price has not been set for this collection, but most Miyazaki fanatics won't worry too much about that, as there are a ton of bonus features included with the Blu-Rays. Bonus content will see several unaired videos, behind-the-scenes documentaries and a number of exclusive animated episodes that Miyazaki worked on.  

To tide you over till November, we've embedded a video below, which features a tribute to Mr. Miyazaki.
