Funimation has announced that The Vision of Escaflowne: The Movie will be getting an HD upgrade! The Blu-ray and Digital HD versions of the movie will hit October 18th, but are already available for pre-order (CLICK HERE). Also available for Blu-ray and Digital HD pre-order are The Vision of Escaflowne: Part 1 and Part 2.

The Vision of Escaflowne is a 26-episode Japanese anime television series produced by Sunrise Studios and directed by Kazuki Akane. It originally premiered on April 2, 1996 in Japan with the finale airing on September 24, 1996. Two very different manga retellings were developed while the anime series was in production: a shōnen version of the story entitled The Vision of Escaflowne and Hitomi - The Vision of Escaflowne, a shōjo retelling. Escaflowne — Energist's Memories, a second shōjo adaptation, was released in 1997 as a single volume. The story was also novelized into a series of six light novels by Yumiko Tsukamoto, Hajime Yatate, and Shoji Kawamori. A movie adaptation, entitled simply Escaflowne, was released in 2000, but bears very little resemblance to the original series.

To celebrate the announcement Funimation has released a clip from the movie entitled "The Vision," which we've included for you below.

Hitomi Kanzaki is a typical girl who runs on the track team and has an affinity for tarot reading. When a young man suddenly appears bringing a dragon along with him, Hitomi’s fate is forever altered. She is swept away in a beam of light and taken to a new world known as Gaea. Gaea is a strange world; here humanoid animals can walk and talk, and soldiers fight in giant mecha suits known as Guymelefs. Hitomi finds herself in the country of Fanelia where a strange young man, named Van Fanel is soon to be king. But misfortune befalls Fanelia when invisible enemies attack, burning the kingdom to the ground. Hitomi is now in a world on the brink of war. And she may have the power to stop it. Using the magnificent Guymelef Escaflowne, Van and Hitomi must find a way to stop the evil Zaibach Empire and get Hitomi back home. But she'll have to hone her powers and learn how delicate fate and destiny truly are.
