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.
Miyazaki's only film set in Feudal Japan.
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 spots San for the first time at the river spitting out a mouthful of Moro no Kimi's blood from the bullet wound in her chest, the number of large wolf teeth on San's necklace changes from four, to three, back to four.
The 2014 Blu-ray release uses the Disney logo, instead of the Miramax logo.
The original Japanese version places a brief text narrative at the beginning of the film; the English-dubbed version replaces it with a verbal narrative explaining the setting to viewers.
