There, he meets the enigmatic Princess Mononoke, a young girl raised by wolves, who will stop at nothing to prevent the humans from destroying her home, and the forest spirits and animal gods who live there. This classic story of the conflict between nature and civilization, and what it means to be human, has dazzled audiences for years with its iconic characters, action-packed battle scenes and sweeping scope.
