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 Ashitaka first visits the Forest Spirits home, he spots the Spirit's traces (shape of his hooves) underneath the water surface. But later in the movie, the spirit is seen as a walking surface, which is regarded as a goof. It isn't. The spirit, shishigami, can do whatever it pleases.
The 2014 Blu-ray release uses the Disney logo, instead of the Miramax logo.
