Experience the film that launched the Academy Award-winning career of one of the most celebrated filmmakers in the history of animation, Hiyao Miyazaki!
After a global war, the seaside kingdom known as the Valley of the Wind remains one of the last strongholds on Earth untouched by a poisonous jungle and the powerful insects that guard it. Led by the courageous Princess Nausicaä, the people of the Valley engage in an epic struggle to restore the bond between humanity and Earth.
Like Hiyao Miyazakis Spirited Away and Ponyo, Nausicaä Of The Valley Of The Wind will dazzle your senses with its intricately imagined storytelling and stunning animation!

I am BEYOND excited about this!!!! I remember seeing this as a teenager. Introduced it to my oldest son who is now 37 yrs old. When my youngest came (now 23) it was already hacked up and renamed Warriors of the Wind. I was DEVASTATED!!! It's now back to it's original form and my youngest hasn't seen it like this yet. They're showing all the Miyazakisan's films in the movie theater here. Then my son will receive his DVD copies. So excited!
Across all Studio Ghibli movies, the enduring common theme seems to be: Respect everyone and everything around you, and you will find peace and balance. I love that this theme carries over regardless of which Studio Ghibli (Hayao Miyazaki) movie you choose.
The flying machines in Nausicaä are wonderful. Combine all the beautiful creations from Howl's Moving Castle, Castle in the Sky, and Porco Rosso, and you have a wonderful collection of form before function machines that bubble in your imagination. Set these machines against some of the most lush and surreal backgrounds you'll ever encounter, and feel your pupils dilate as you bathe in the purity of the moment. I can't imagine the amount of thought and imagination which goes into creating just some of the simple, fleeting, albeit beautiful scenes which frame a stupendous plot and characters.
And finally, there's the story. And what a story it is! If you have enjoyed any of the other Studio Ghibli/Hayao Miyazaki masterpieces, do yourself a favor and give this one viewing. You grow attached to the characters, and your heart stops when something dramatic happens to the characters.
