This December, fans can look forward to full color hardcover picture book releases for the beloved CASTLE IN THE SKY and PRINCESS MONONOKE, perfect for sharing the magic of these legendary films with readers of all ages! 
Created by the renowned Hayao Miyazaki, both extraordinary feature films celebrate major milestones – Castle in the Sky‘s 30th anniversary was in 2016, and this year marks the 20th anniversary of Princess Mononoke! Relive the movies in these family-friendly editions using full color stills direct from the film and easy to read text:
  • CASTLE IN THE SKY is Miyazaki’s masterpiece of fantasy & flight! Somewhere high in the clouds floats the legendary island of Laputa. Pazu and Sheeta is in a race against time to find Laputa before soldiers from the aerial dreadnought Goliath and the man who leads them, Muska, get there first. Muska has his eyes on power, and he alone knows how to activate the castle’s ancient superweapons that could make him master of the world. Can Pazu and Sheeta stop his sinister plan?
  • PRINCESS MONONOKE mixes fantasy, history and Japanese folklore into a glorious epic! Marked with the curse of a rampaging boar god, young Ashitaka sets off on a journey to cure his mysterious affliction. From behind the walls of an iron-mining town, Lady Eboshi arises to smash all obstacles to technological development. And from out of the forest comes Princess Mononoke, driven by a hatred of all humans. Can she and Ashitaka ally in time to stop the wild lands from being destroyed?
