From the legendary Studio Ghibli, creators of Spirited Away, and Academy Award®-winning* director Hayao Miyazaki, comes an epic masterpiece that has dazzled audiences worldwide with its breathtaking imagination, exhilarating battles, and deep humanity.

Inflicted with a deadly curse, the young warrior Ashitaka heads west in search of a cure. There, he stumbles into a bitter conflict between Lady Eboshi, the proud people of Iron Town, and 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.

Why We Like It

There’s no doubt that this will remain, for many years to come, the definitive home-video release of the film. Derek Smith, Slant Magazine

"Princess Mononoke is a must on Blu-ray. Not only is its storytelling rich, but even more so is it visually breathtaking. It’s arguably one of the pinnacles of hand-drawn cell animation, outdone perhaps only by Studio Ghibli’s own Spirited Away a few years later. In high definition you can wholly appreciate the work that goes into such a laborious process, the precision of every frame, and Mononoke's stunning color palette." Austin Trunick, Undertheradarmag.com

If you lust after attractive, eye-catching graphic design, this is one of the best-made collector’s editions to come around in ages. The package is similar to last year’s collector’s edition for My Neighbor Totoro and complements that gorgeous set on your shelf. Studio Ghibli collectors, this is more or less an essential purchase. Christopher Zabel, Doblu.com
