Trivia

Princess Mononoke was the first animated film ever to receive the Japan Academy Prize for picture of the year. Only one other animated film has ever received this award (Spirited Away (2001), 2002). Prior to 2007, there was no category for Best Animation of the Year, which was won by The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (2006) in its first year.


Quotes

Narrator: 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 ...


Goofs

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.


Crazy Credits

The 2014 Blu-ray release uses the Disney logo, instead of the Miramax logo.


Alternate Versions

When aired on Canadian cable channel, YTV, a slightly different earlier "rough-cut" version of the English dub aired instead of the theatrical version. This version features some different dialogue such as in the scene where Lady Eboshi first sees San, she calls her "Wolf beast" instead of "Princess Mononoke". The singing of the movie's theme is also left in Japanese and not dubbed into English for this version.
