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.
With a runtime of 134 minutes (2 hour and 14 minutes), it is the fourth longest animated film ever made after Final Yamato (1983) (165 minutes), The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya (2010) (162 minutes) and The Tale of The Princess Kaguya (2013) (138 minutes).
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 San receives the crystal dagger necklace from Ashitaka she ties it on and it is visibly separate from her wolf tooth necklace. A few moments later when she climbs onto the back of one of the wolves, the crystal dagger is part of the wolf teeth necklace and is not on a separate cord. Later in the movie the two necklaces are separate again.
The 2014 Blu-ray release uses the Disney logo, instead of the Miramax logo.
Jigo, in the Japanese version, criticizes the stew he is eating by saying it tastes like water; he calls it donkey piss in the English-dubbed version.
