Princess Mononoke is the tenth feature film produced and released by the Japanese Animation studio, Studo Ghibli (スタジオジブリ), and the seventh film directed by Hayao Miyzaki. It took Miyazaki over sixteen years to fully develop the story; and at the time it was the most expensive anime ever produced. It currently sits at #98 on the IMDB Top 250 films, and at 94% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes.
