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.
The star-shaped treats the Susuwatari (black soots) were carrying are called kompeitô, a type of traditional Japanese candy.
I'll miss you, Chihiro. Your best friend, Rumi.
When Haku shows Chihiro how to get to Kamaji the door to the boiler room opens inwards and when she eventually comes there it opens outwards.
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.
