Princess Mononoke

1997

Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli’s most expensive movie, Princess Mononoke, is released. The story follows a young warrior as he is entangled in  a conflict between nature and humanity’s industrious ambitions.

I think I really exhausted the animation staff with this film. I knew that was gonna happen, but felt that we had to do this. But when I finished, I didn’t understand it: “What did I make?!” At first I decided, “This is something children shouldn’t see,” but in the end I realised,”‘No, this is something that children must see,” because adults, they didn’t get it — children understood it.
