Warrior/pacifist Princess Nausicaä desperately struggles to prevent two warring nations from destroying themselves and their dying planet.
Patrick Stewart who voiced Lord Yupa also played Captain Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generation. Captain Picard had an artificial heart that he needed installed after a run in with a Nausican (s06e15 "Tapestry).
It's rotting... it's too soon...
When Nausicaa is underneath the toxic jungle, and she goes under a hole through which the sand passes, Teto disappear from her shoulder, and then in the next shot, he reappears on her.
As the credits roll we see life returning to normal in the valley: Kushana, Kurotowa and the Tolmekian fleet leave peacefully, after Nausicaä has unheard words for Kushana. The denizens of the Valley of the Wind replant trees in the burned-down forest. Lord Yupa and Asbel ride Yupa's beasts to the Toxic Jungle and explore it. When the text "The End" appears on screen we see Nausicaa's discarded helmet in the forest, alongside a green, non-Toxic Jungle sapling.
