‘My Neighbor Totoro’ Kicks Off Studio Ghibli Fest 2017 This Sunday

Starting this weekend, GKIDS & Fathom Event’s kicks off STUDIO GHIBLI FEST 2017 (a six-film monthly series of anime masterpieces) with its first title “My Neighbor Totoro,” hitting select U.S. movie theaters on Sunday, June 25 at 12:55 p.m. local time (English language dubbed) and Monday, June 26 at 7:00 p.m. local time (English language subtitled).  Also as part of the exclusive event experience, audiences will enjoy the GKIDS MINIFEST, an ongoing festival of award-winning short animated films from around the world.

“My Neighbor Totoro,” from legendary director Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli, follows the story of two young girls, Satsuki and Mei, who move with their father to a new house in the countryside. But country life is not as simple as it seems, as they soon discover the house and nearby woods are full of strange and delightful creatures, most notably a family of Totoros, gigantic but gentle bear like forest spirits that can only be seen by children.

Tickets for “My Neighbor Totoro” can be purchased beginning online by visiting www.ghiblifest.com, www.FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices. A complete list of theater locations can be found on the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).

Following “Totoro,” the monthly series will continue with “Kiki's Delivery Service,” “Castle In The Sky,”  “Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind,” “Howl’s Moving Castle,” plus a special cinema-run of the Academy Award-winning “Spirited Away” timed for Halloween.
