In the tradition of J.R.R. Tolkien comes an epic environmental cautionary tale created by world-renowned animator Hayao Miyazaki! Humanity, in its hubris, has precipitated a devastating ecological disaster. Flourrishing industrial civilizations have been swallowed up and Earth is covered with the Sea of Corruption, an enormous forest of fungi that releases a miasma of poisonous spores into the air.
Nausicaa, a gentle young princess, has an empathic bond with the giant mutated insects that evolved in the wake of the destruction of the ecosystem. Traveling by cumbersome flying ship, on the backs of giant flightless birds, and perched atop her beloved glider, Nausicaa and her allies must negotiate peace between kingdoms battling over the last of the world's precious natural resources.......
Creator Miyazaki is best known in the United States as the writer, director, and character designer of Fox Video's animated film MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO, as well as LAPUTA: THE CASTLE IN THE SKY and KIKI's DELIVERY SERVICE.
