GKIDS and Fathom Events continue their collaboration bringing treasures of Japanese animated cinema to fans in the US with Studio Ghibli Fest 2018. The next gem to hit theaters across the country is Oscar-winning director Hayao Miyazaki’s beloved, touching and magical My Neighbor Totoro — celebrating its 30th anniversary!
(Check out the re-released vintage Japanese trailer!)
My Neighbor Totoro is the story of Satsuki and her sister Mei, who move with their father to a new home in the countryside where they find country life is not as simple as it seems. They soon discover that the house and nearby woods are full of strange and delightful creatures, including a gigantic but gentle forest spirit called Totoro, who can only be seen by children. Totoro and his friends introduce the girls to a series of adventures, including a ride aboard the extraordinary Cat Bus, in this all-ages animated masterpiece featuring the voices of Tim Daly, Lea Salonga, and real-life sisters Dakota and Elle Fanning, in a classic tale of magic and adventure for the whole family.
Screenings will be held Sunday, September 30 at 12:55 p.m. (English dubbed); Monday, October 1 at 7 p.m. (English subtitled); and Wednesday, October 3 at 7 p.m. (English dubbed).
