Hayao Miyazaki’s Post-Apocalyptic NAUSICAA Returning to Theaters This Month | Nerdist
Have you been enjoying Ghibli Fest?
The months-long chance to see the films of the great Hayao Miyazaki on the big screen, many not screened in theaters for decades? The theatrical festial has been rather successful for GKIDS and Fathom Events, and they’re gearing up for some of their biggest Studio Ghibli titles yet, with Spirited Away screening in October and Howl’s Moving Castle the month after. But for September, it’s something rather special: Miyazaki’s second feature, and the movie that led to the creation of Studio Ghibli in the first place, 1984’s Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind. Based on Miyazaki’s own 1982 manga, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind tells the story of a young princess in a desolate, post-apocalyptic version of Earth, in which her kingdom, the Valley of the Wind, is the only place not turned fully into a desert or overtaken by massive insectioid creatures. Nausicaä believes humanity has to learn to live in harmony with these big bugs and has to stand against a rival kingdom that means to wipe them out. Miyazaki’s first foray into environmentalism and joining nature rather than destroying it, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind is truly a science fiction/fantasy work for the ages. You have three chances to see this movie in theaters: on Sunday, Sept 24, and Wednesday Sept 27, you can see the film dubbed with an English cast including people like Alison Lohman, Uma Thurman, Patrick Stewart, and Edward James Olmos.
