And to think this movie was once known in America as "Warriors of the Wind," a 95-edited travesty that turned Miyazaki's 118 minute ecological epic into a dumbed down kids' adventure. Thank goodness Disney rescued this and gave it the care it deserves. While I do have a few minor quibbles about the dub (Shia LaBeouf is the weakest link, and while Alison Lohman is good for the most part, I did detect some parts where she seems a little hoarse -- not enough to drag down her performance though), Patrick Stewart is undeniably good in it as are most of the rest of the cast. (That said, I like Mark Hamill better as Muska than as the Mayor of Pejite in this film, but he still does a fine performance here.) This movie can be seen as sort of a blueprint for Miyazaki's later "Princess Mononoke", in that many of the themes and character archetypes are similar. There are differences, though: the heroine is the lead character, not the male, and the "Lady Eboshi" style character, Kushana, is less redeeming than the latter film -- while she has a tragic past, she's more bitter and unlikeable, but I think that's the point. It's almost hard to tell this one was made in 1984, because frankly, it's still gorgeous to look at -- and occasionally gritty, especially the scenes of the toxic jungle and its monstrous insects. Nonetheless, this is a movie that still holds up well after its initial release in 1984.

I still have yet to see this movie, but I know there will be one thing that'll make this worth a viewing alone.

Tony Jay's narration.

@DreamMaster08X Too bad his narration lasts less than a minute right at the beginning of the movie... at least I think that's how long it lasts.

But, you also get an awesome Patrick Stewart performance and Nausicaa and Lord Yupa are both hardcore BA's. I think you'll enjoy it.

@PsychicVoiceSpy I figured that'd be the case. But I still say it's worth it.

@DreamMaster08X Also Jodi Benson, and I'd also like to see it for Tony Jay's opening narration!
