    Source: Mill Creek Entertainment Special Thanks to Roy McAree Mill Creek Entertainment will follow up last year`s Blu-ray Double Feature of GAMERA: GUARDIAN OF THE UNIVERSE (Gamera Daikaiju Kuchu Kessen, 1995) and GAMERA 2: ATTACK OF THE LEGION (Gamera 2: Region Shurai, 1996) with two more Gamera Blu-ray releases scheduled for September 27th: GAMERA 3: REVENGE OF IRIS (Gamera 3: Iris Kakusei, 1999) and a GAMERA TRILOGY set of all three films. The upcoming releases will complete the acclaimed series by the team of directed Shusuke Kaneko (GMK, DEATH NOTE), writer Kazunori Ito (GHOST IN THE SHELL), and FX director Shinji Higuchi (SINKING OF JAPAN, HIDDEN FORTRESS: THE LAST PRINCESS). The Gamera movies were licensed from Joyplex, Inc., the US sales agent for Kadokawa Pictures, owners of the Gamera franchise. The GAMERA 3 Blu-ray will feature a brand-new high-def transfer from Kadokawa`s original film elements. For anyone who has noticed that the GAMERA 3 cover art mistakenly uses images from GAMERA: GUARDIAN OF THE UNIVERSE, Joyplex has already requested that Mill Creek correct that error (and the typo on the TRILOGY cover) and been assured that Mill Creek is "all over it!". As previously announced on SciFi Japan, Mill Creek has also acquired the rights to the classic Daimajin trilogy and plans to release the films on Blu-ray in the near future.

    Still reeling after the hard-fought battle to repel Legion, Japan is now reminded of a deadly foe from the past. The Gyaos have returned, and this time the ornery man-eating birds have not only increased their numbers, but also added a menacing new member, Iris, to their destructive little club. Raised by a young girl whose parents Gamera accidentally squished, the flying blood-sucking squid monster Iris takes her learned hatred and goes out on the warpath. Dr. Nagamine and Inspector Osaka are reunited to help Gamera in his relentless quest to protect and save the human race. Can Gamera ground the Gyaos? Can the turtle tie up the terrible tentacles? Do the hapless humans and the rowdy reptile have what it takes to thwart the revenge of Iris?
