Twenty-five years ago, Studio Ghibli’s Princess Mononoke Hit Theatre. With a story revolving around a pair of people from very different backgrounds navigating a world of magic and mystery, it remains a fan-favorite film from the legendary animation studio. Helping ring in the big year, Ghibli has given fans a first look at a new statue that depicts the “Forest Spirit,” one of the most important deities in the film that pits humans against the gods.

The forest spirit, who looks like a huge and grotesque deer, first appeared as a kind and innocent deity roaming the forest and creating new life under his hooves with every step. Unfortunately, thanks to the mistakes of mankind, the spirit is killed and poses a great threat to the world that could potentially end all life on the planet. Fortunately, the two main protagonists were able to figure out how to stop the encroaching curse and save mankind from themselves after a disastrous chain of events.

New Princess Mononoke The statue is set to arrive in Japan this October and will retail for around USD 160, helping celebrate the long history of film from Studio Ghibli being able to become a great film through anime:

Princess Mononoke Studio Ghibli has mostly stuck to “one more done” stories in the past, but the film will return in unexpected ways this fall. Studio Ghibli will open the doors to its first amusement park, bringing many of the familiar locations from their films as attractions when the park opens this November. “Mononoke Village” for the theme park will be the main attraction of the film, with other Ghibli films such as My Neighbor Totoro and Howell’s Moving Castle also to be screened.

If you haven’t seen this classic anime movie before, it’s currently streaming on HBO Max as a part of the streaming service’s Studio Ghibli library.
