During her family's move to the suburbs, a sullen 10-year-old girl wanders into a world ruled by gods, witches, and spirits, and where humans are changed into beasts.
To do the voice of Chihiro's mother talking while eating, actress Yasuko Sawaguchi actually spoke the dialog (in the original Japanese-language version) while eating a piece of Kentucky Fried Chicken. Actress Lauren Holly did the same thing in the English version with an apple.
I'll miss you, Chihiro. Your best friend, Rumi.
After Haku flies out of the bedroom we see Sen's left hand touching more of the blood on the railing. The elevator attendant sees it on the same hand after grabbing her arm as she tries to board it. Not much later we see her looking at the same hand again before running across the pipe. It isn't till after being held captive by the baby under the cushions that the blood switches hands as he holds her by the left arm revealing no blood on that hand at all.
The credits have a series of still images from the film. The last image before the film fades is Chihiro's shoe in the river.
All international theatrical releases, as well as all worldwide home video releases, omit the Toho Company, Ltd. logo seen at the beginning of the Japanese theatrical version; the film simply begins with the Studio Ghibli logo.
