In honor of director Hayao Miyazaki’s birthday, and in celebration of its 20th Anniversary, the animated epic PRINCESS MONONOKE returns to theaters for TWO DAYS ONLY – January 5 (original Japanese with English subtitles) and January 9 (English dub). The release will include the exclusive addition of the 1995 Miyazaki-directed music video by the Japanese rock duo Chage & Aska for their song “On Your Mark," never before released in North America.
Princess Mononoke unfolds as Ashitaka, a young warrior inflicted with a deadly curse, heads into the forest in search of a cure. There, he meets the enigmatic Princess Mononoke, a young girl raised by wolves, who will stop at nothing to prevent the humans from destroying her home, and the forest spirits and animal gods who live there. This classic story of the conflict between nature and civilization, and what it means to be human, has dazzled audiences for years with its iconic characters, action-packed battle scenes and sweeping scope.
