Hayao Miyazaki’s Princess Mononoke returns to theaters for two nights in January 2017


Hayao Miyazaki (who is no longer retired from filmmaking) turns 76 years old on January 5th. His film Princess Mononoke turns 20 years old in 2017. To celebrate these two landmark occasions, GKIDS and Fathom Events are bringing Princess Mononoke back to theaters on the nights of January 5th and January 9th.

On January 5th, the Japanese-language/English-subtitled version of Princess Mononoke will play in participating theaters. On January 9th, the English-dubbed Neil Gaiman translation of Princess Mononoke will be screened. Each screening will also include the 1995 music video for “On Your Mark” by Chage & Aska, which was directed by Miyazaki but never released in North America.

I still remember seeing Princess Mononoke on the big screen in 1999 and enjoying it immensely, though it was the dubbed version. I may make some time to check out the Japanese-language version come January.
