This is not a "screw up" by Disney nor will you find the original Japanese
soundtrack on the DVD. Disney didn't just repackage the original Japanese DVD
for distribution in North America, as Cartoon Network has doen with Gundam Wing.
Disney made an original DVD of "Disney's Princess Mononoke" -- the North
American film release from Disney, not the Studio Ghibli film.

Disney bought the rights to the film from Studio Ghibli, adapted it with a new
and original English-language script commissioned from Neil Gaiman and recorded
in their own studios, and released the result as DISNEY'S Princess Mononoke.
Disney is now distributing that release on DVD.
