Go give your peepers a polish -- your eyes are about to be in for the treat of a lifetime. After years of requests from fans, Studio Canal is finally to release a Blu-ray box set of films from the influential anime powerhouse Studio Ghibli.

The Hayao Miyazaki Box Set brings together all eleven of the Miyazaki-directed Studio Ghibli films for the first time in a luxurious, high-definition 12-disc set. So that's classics like My Neighbour Totoro and Porco Rosso right up to the more recent The Wind Rises. It's a box full of fairytale dream worlds and some of the finest 2D animation ever conceived.

Also joining the box set is Spirited Away, arguably Miyazaki's finest work, releasing for the first time on Blu-ray. It'll also be available as a single, standalone Blu-ray too, on sale from November 24th.

As for the box set, Studio Canal has yet to confirm the release date or price, but Amazon UK has the collection down to go on sale from December 8th 2014. Just in time for Christmas then, but its £180 price tag will have to make it your "big present" for this year.
