Spirited Away Movie

Miyazaki is coming back to theaters! GKids and Fathom Events have announced a special 15th anniversary screening of Spirited Away, Studio Ghibli's 2001 film written & directed by Hayao Miyazaki, which won the Best Animated Feature Oscar (in 2003). The film will be showing in theaters nationwide for two days only - on Sunday, December 4th (the English dubbed version) and Monday, December 5th (the English subtitled version). The special event will also include the short film "Ghiblies: Episode 2" - described as a unique 25-minute film from Studio Ghibli, featuring "several comedic vignettes and caricatures" of Studio Ghibli staff as they go about their day. As a huge Ghibli fan, it's always a treat to see their films in theaters.

Here's a look back at the official English-dubbed trailer for Miyazaki's Spirited Away - check it out below:

Hayao Miyazaki's Spirited Away (also on Blu-ray) follows 10-year-old Chihiro (voiced by Rumi Hiiragi) on another seemingly-boring trip with her parents. When they stop at a mysterious village, her parents undergo a puzzling transformation, and she is whisked into a world of fantastic spirits, shape-shifting dragons and a witch who never wants to see her leave. Chihiro must call on the courage she never knew she had to free herself and return her family to the outside world. The film was first released in Japan in 2001, but didn't hit theaters in the US until 2002. It's still the only Ghibli film to win an Academy Award. Some cinemas in NYC host Ghibli events, but I'm glad to see one of their best playing in theaters all over. More of this please.

    So good. I can't wait to see this on the big screen again. There still is no substitute for a theatre sized screening.
