Your Attention Please: No English Dub on Japanese Ponyo BD
AICN is reporting that the December 8 Japanese BD release of Ponyo includes the English dub, this is not true. The error originates from an AsianBlurayGuide.com article which was quoted by theblurayblog.com which was then quoted by AICN.
The AsianBlurayGuide.com article includes a link to an ANN article that has the correct (but misinterpreted) BD details.
