‘My Neighbor Totoro’ Lands in U.S. Cinemas as the First Title of STUDIO GHIBLI FEST 2017 Series
on June 25 and 26 Only

WHAT: STUDIO GHIBLI FEST 2017, a six-film, monthly series of anime masterpieces, is coming to cinemas nationwide. In June, the series kicks off with the iconic “My Neighbor Totoro,” from legendary director Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli.

Two young girls, Satsuki and Mei, move with their father to a new house in the countryside. But country life is not so 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.

This event also features the GKIDS MINIFEST, an ongoing festival of award-winning short animated films from around the world, as part of the exclusive event experience.
