One of Studio Ghibli’s crowning achievements is Hayao Miyazaki’s gorgeous masterwork Spirited Away – a film that remains as one of the most beloved Japanese features in recent history and is frequently considered by many to be Miyazaki’s best film.
After securing an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature at the 75th Academy Awards, the second feature to receive the award, Miyazaki’s picture continued to blitz a box office trail. In Japan, Spirited Away is still the highest grossing film in Japanese box office history!
Spirited Away follows a young girl, Chihiro, who is magically whisked away into the world of spirits. In order to return to the world of the living and restore her parents to normal after being transformed into pigs, Chihiro must work at a bathhouse for spirits. It is here where she meets a mysterious young boy named Haku who helps guide her through the spirit world.
Fans of the film will be able to relive Miyazaki’s animated wonder in high-definition thanks to the new and improved picture upgrade the film has received for its Blu-ray release, distributed by Madman Entertainment.
