Wait, Isao Takahata’s Anne of Green Gables anime series was dubbed into English?

Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables is probably one of, if not the best, known Canadian novels of all time. With over 50 million copies sold since its initial 1908 publication, and countless adaptations, it’s not too difficult to stumble upon some version of the stern Marilla and meek Matthew Cuthbert being charmed by the antics of a spirited redheaded orphan.

Then we found out that Toronto’s Mongrel Media had picked up the film for a late May theatrical and on-demand release. I’ve managed to get in touch with Mongrel to clear up any unanswered questions.
