** The two anime films were both produced by Production I.G., but they have different distributors. The original film was released by Shochiku in Japan, and Manga Entertainment (at the time, owned by [=PolyGram=]) outside Asia. Unlike most anime properties, Manga outright ''owns'' some distribution rights to the film permanently since they co-funded its production. Manga was sold to Anchor Bay in 2004, who was bought by Starz in 2006, who themselves were bought by Lionsgate in 2016. The second film, ''Innocence'', was released by Toho in Japan and DreamWorks' [=GoFish=] Pictures overseas (though Manga reached a deal to release it in the UK and Australia). After Creator/{{Paramount}} inherited their back catalog, they licensed it to Bandai, and later to FUNimation.

** The original [=DreamWorks=] went from an independent studio (with Creator/{{Universal}} handling home video) to a division of Creator/{{Paramount}}. Beginning in 2008, the studio broke off from Paramount and its films from 2009 until 2016 were distributed by Disney, under their Touchstone Pictures banner (with 20th Century Fox handling some of them overseas). After negotiations between the two broke down and [=DreamWorks=] became part of the newly-formed Amblin Partners, future releases will be from multiple studios, but primarily Universal. Their back-catalog prior to the split remains with Paramount (not unlike MGM's pre-May 1986 library staying with WB), and Disney will retain the ones that they distributed.
