Spirited Away – Hayao Miyazaki | Disney

This recording of “Spirited Away” directed by Hayao Miyazaki and distributed by Disney is an absolute marvel when it comes to artwork, acting, animation, storyline and music. The movie first came out in cinemas and was a huge success.

It was even awarded an Oscar in 2002 after having a category invented especially for it (Best Animated Feature Film). It then came out on DVD but this did not do the cinema version justice. Finally, Disney has distributed a Blu Ray version which comes with a complimentary DVD. The Blu Ray really goes a long way to recreating the beauty and masterful work that went into the original movie.
