Princess Mononoke returns to cinemas for 20th anniversary

Classic Dungeons & Dragons back in print! - Available now @ Dungeon Masters Guild

Hayao Miyazaki’s epic masterpiece Princess Mononoke is coming back to the big screen for its 20th anniversary — and you have the option of seeing its masterful Neil Gaiman English dub featuring Billy Crudup, Billy Bob Thornton, Minnie Driver, Claire Danes, Jada Pinkett Smith and Gillian Anderson on Jan. 9, or in the original Japanese with English subtitles on Jan. 5.

Why not both?

Princess Mononoke is the film that introduced me to the world of Studio Ghibli, and indeed to the world of theatrical anime. I saw it no less than five times with my best friends at Harkins’ old Camelview cinema, and it was one of the first titles I owned on DVD.

This tale of a fantastical feudal Japan’s struggle between ancient animal gods and human expansion and industrialization resonates as much now as it did in 1997. If you haven’t seen it, there’s no better way to discover it for yourself than with this limited cinematic re-release.

Be sure to take a friend — or four.
