On a journey to find the cure for a Tatarigami's curse, Ashitaka finds himself in the middle of a war between the forest gods and Tatara, a mining colony. In this quest he also meets San, the Mononoke Hime.
Many speculate that various things featured in the Nintendo game The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (2017) were greatly inspired by this film. For example, in the first 10 minutes of the film, the clothes Ashitaka is wearing closely resemble both look and color pallete of Link's tunic. ... ...
In ancient times, the land lay covered in forests, where, from ages long past, dwelt the spirits of the gods. Back then, man and beast lived in harmony, but as time went by, most of the great forests were destroyed. Those that remained were guarded ...
When Ashitaka swims to Iron Town during the battle, there is a shot of the water. In the next shot there is a floating corpse not visible in the previous shot.
