Synopsis: 2029: A female cybernetic government agent, Major Motoko Kusanagi, and the Internal Bureau of Investigations are hot on the trail of “The Puppet Master,” a mysterious and threatening computer virus capable of infiltrating human hosts. Together with her fellow agents from Section 9, Kusanagi embarks on a high-tech race against time to capture the omnipresent entity. Director Mamoru Oshii‘s award-winning cyber-tech thriller, based on the beloved manga by Shirow Masamune, is lauded as one of the leading Japanese animation films of all time.

The film’s voice cast includes Atsuko Tanaka (Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence, TV’s Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Ghost in the Shell 2.0), Akio Ôtsuka (Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence, Paprika, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots) and Kôichi Yamadera (Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence, Cowboy Bebop: The Movie, Ninja Scroll).

Special features include a full-length audio commentary with Mary Claypool (animation writer & English language scriptwriter), Eric Calderon (animation producer & writer), Richard Epcar (voice of “Batou”) and Charles Solomon (animation historian & critic), as well as two brand new bonus featurettes: Accessing Section 9: 25 Years into the Future and Landscapes & Dreamscapes – The Art and Architecture of Ghost in the Shell.

The Ghost in the Shell 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack will be available for the suggested retail price of $22.99.

In addition to the 4KHD combo pack, the release will be offered in an exclusive SteelBook set featuring artwork by Clio Award-winning Mexican artist Orlando Arocena, available only from Best Buy.
