Animated Film <I>Spirited Away</I> Back to Theaters25 Mar, 2003 By: Hive News
After winning an Oscar for best animated film, Spirited Away is returning to theaters this Friday, March 28.
"With this important Oscar recognition, the film will have the additional awareness and appeal needed to find a welcome reception," said Walt Disney Studios chairman Dick Cook.
Spirited Away is written and directed by famed animator Hiyao Miyazaki, who was also the creative force behind 1997's Princess Mononoke.
Spirited Away is scheduled for home video release April 15 (prebooking now) at $29.99 for a two-DVD set and $19.99 for English-dubbed VHS. Also coming April 15 on VHS and two-DVD sets are two other animated films written and directed by Miyazaki: Kiki's Delivery Service and Castle in the Sky.
