News Briefs: Miyazaki Internet Chat, Pokemon Movie Contest Frenzy

Thursday, November 4, 1999 in News & Info, Anime News. Leave a comment

Fans and non-fans alike will have the opportunity to chat via the internet with Princess Mononoke's prolific director, Hayao Miyazaki, tomorrow night, Thursday November 4th at 9:00 P.M. EST. The chat will be held at the movie's official website: http://www.princess-mononoke.com

This past Monday, Warner Brothers aired a spot on KTLA TV Channel 5 in Los Angeles which promoted a contest with a chance to win tickets to the Pokémon movie premiere. Callers reportedly began flooding Warner Bros. phone lines, reaching 70,000 calls per minute. The calls continued to stream in by afternoon maintaining 40,000 calls per minute, enough to force the studio to shut down its voice mail system until 7 p.m. that evening.

"This is absolutely without precedent," said Brad A. Ball, Warner Bros. Pictures' president of domestic marketing. "That one announcement on the local morning news could provoke such an enormous response is an incredibly exciting indicator of Pokémon's appeal."
