PG-13 | | Animation, Adventure, Fantasy
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.
The creative teams of Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008), Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008) and Star Wars Rebels (2014) cited San as an inspiration for Ashoka Tano. There are quite a few similarities between the two characters such as their spiritual connection to nature and life as well as their fighting and movement style.
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.
The 2014 Blu-ray release uses the Disney logo, instead of the Miramax logo.
