GKIDS Brings Spirited Away To Theaters For 15th Anniversary!


Spirited Away is considered by many to be Hayao Miyazaki’s greatest film.

This year is the film’s 15th Anniversary and GKIDS is bringing it back to theaters for two days – December 4th & 5th – along with an exclusive short film from Studio Ghibli called Ghiblies: Episode 2.

Spirited Away follows 10-year old Chihiro on what she expects to be a boring trip with her parents but takes her into a world of ‘fantastic spirits, shape-shifting dragons and a witch who never wants to see her leave.’

In Select Theaters Two Days Only: December 4 & December 5

“Spirited Away” follows 10-year-old Chihiro (Rumi Hiiragi) on another seemingly-boring trip with her parents. However, when they stop at a mysterious village, her parents undergo a puzzling transformation, and she is whisked into a world of fantastic spirits, shape-shifting dragons and a witch who never wants to see her leave. Chihiro must call on the courage she never knew she had to free herself and return her family to the outside world.

“Ghiblies: Episode 2” is a unique 25-minute short film from Studio Ghibli, featuring several comedic vignettes and caricatures of Studio Ghibli staff as they go about their day. Utilizing new animation techniques and software that would then be deployed on the production of “My Neighbors the Yamadas,” “Ghiblies: Episode 2” has never been released in North America and will make its theatrical premiere at this special screening event.
