Andy has been writing for UK Anime since 2006, and was the site's editor-in-chief until August 2017.  Contrary to popular belief, Andy is not actually a robot.


Amazon Video continues to be an inscrutable and unexpected home to anime titles here in the UK, and recent days saw another surprising appearance on their streaming service out of the blue.

You can now find the three family-friendly adventure films that make up Nippon Animation's Sindbad (or Sinbad if, y'know, you want to spell the dude's name properly) efforts for 2015 and 2016 - what's more, all three are available in either Japanese with English subtitles or an English dub.

Amazon describes this film trilogy thus:

An anime trilogy based on the literary classic 'The Arabian Nights.” A hardworking and curious boy named SINBAD dreams of becoming a sailor and traveling around the world. One day, he encounters a mysterious girl on a flying wooden horse and a group of men who chases her by flying carpets. Flying carpet, iron ship, attacking giant birds, and the secret island… Many hardships remain ahead of him!

Unhelpfully, the films are labelled with their Japanese titles, so here are the three films in their correct order and with English titles:

1. Sindbad: The Flying Princess and the Secret Island (Subbed / Dubbed)

2. Sindbad: The Magical Lamp and the Moving Island (Subbed / Dubbed)

3. Sindbad Movie 3 (Subbed / Dubbed)

It's worth noting that the longer third film in this trilogy is a compilation of footage from the first two movies, followed by additional footage to conclude the story.
