I want to upload the regular-size DVD cover of the Disney version of My Neighbor Totoro, There is one for the slim DVD case, but not for the standard DVD case.) The movie was released in 1988, and Fox came out with a VHS and full-screen DVD after it was released. Disney came out with a different version (with different actors and sound effects) in 2010. Which year should I use in the title of the Disney version, My Neighbor Totoro (YYYY) WS R1? 1988 or 2010?

How is that version listed on iMDB? That's the final authority, when there are multiple instances.


I just look at the pictures.

Many thanks for pointing me to iMDB, Fogdude. They list the year as 1988. So that's what I'll go with. Interestingly, iMDB lists the cast members of all versions of this film.
