Magic, fantasy and Celtic mythology come to life in Cartoon Saloon's celebrated Irish Folklore Trilogy, featuring three Academy Award®-nominated* modern animated classics. The studio's first film, The Secret of Kells, which beautifully tells the tale of a master illuminator and his young apprentice, is followed by the breathtakingly gorgeous Song of the Sea, which recounts the adventure of a mythical seal-child and her brother on a quest, and the triumphant Wolfwalkers, which delves into the friendship between a young huntress and a free-spirited wolf-girl. This limited edition set features the exclusive Blu-ray™ presentation of Wolfwalkers and hours of new bonus features exploring the three films in environmentally friendly packaging that reflects each film's loving depiction of the natural world.
*2009: Best Animated Feature Film, The Secret of Kells ; 2014: Best Animated Feature Film, Song of the Sea ; 2020: Best Animated Feature Film, Wolfwalkers

Gonna order it direct from the Cartoon Saloon store when the preorder goes up.
The main studio is literally 10 minutes from my house in Kilkenny & I know a good few people who have work for the studio so will definitely be snapping this up!

The cartoon saloon store in Ireland sells some their films on Blu-ray or DVD

They do have the USA gkids region A/1 blu-ray/dvd combo release of The Secret of Kells

They might sell at a later time the Region A Gkids box set but that will be USA import

They’ve confirmed it will be on their store soon.
They’ve also confirmed that there’ll be a European release but no date confirmed yet.

Gonna pre-order from the US but I really hope this comes to the UK.
This box set unlikely to get a release in UK
Gkids is a USA label

UK/Ireland releases
Song of the Sea/The Secret of Kells/The Breadwinner is from StudioCanal

Wolfwalkers not got a Blu-ray/DVD release yet in UK/Ireland but might be from StudioCanal or a different UK/Ireland blu-ray label when it does get a release
Wildcard are the distributors for cinema release in Ireland/UK and home media releases are with various different distributors for films they looked after

In regards to Wolfwalkers If you have Apple TV + it's available to stream as part of your subscription
