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 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.
There are no opening credits.
In the original Japanese version, we hear the penetration of wood when Ashitaka strikes the stock of Eboshi's Ishibiya; in the English-dubbed version we hear the added sound effect of a metallic clang.
