Description


Raised by wolves and calling the forest her home, a young girl by the name of Princess Mononoke is the only one who can save the planet!

It was the Age of Iron: a time when mankind was just starting to understand its ability to exploit the earth and all its natural resources. But a war was brewing--a war between a village of iron miners and the animal gods of the surrounding forest.

Marked with the curse of a rampaging boar god, young Ashitaka sets off on a journey to cure his mysterious affliction. Little does he know that the fate of the entire world is now resting on his shoulders!
