From the mind of master director Hayao Miyazaki (My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away), this beloved animated film tells an epic tale of conflict between humans, gods, and nature. While defending his village from a demonic boar-god, the young warrior Ashitaka becomes afflicted with a curse that will eventually take his life. Traveling west to find a cure, he journeys into the sacred depths of the Great Forest, where he meets Princess Mononoke, a girl raised by wolf-gods who is waging battle against the humans who seek to destroy the forest.
