GKIDS and Fathom Events have announced that they are celebrating the 30th anniversary of Hayao Miyazaki’s animated masterpiece My Neighbor Totoro with a special theatrical release as part of Studio Ghibli Fest 2018.
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.
