“My Neighbour Totoro: 30th Anniversary Edition Box Set” includes a Doubleplay (DVD and Blu-ray) edition of the film, packed in a deluxe oversized rigid box with brand new exclusive artwork and holographic numbering. Packaged with a 176-page hardback The Art Of My Neighbour Totoro book, the Box Set also includes artcards, a 16’ x 24’ poster featuring original Japanese theatrical artwork, a premium heavy cotton tote bag, a Magnetic sticker set and a Hardback My Neighbour Totoro Notebook, all exclusive to the 30th Anniversary Edition.

Synopsis:

While their mother recovers from an illness, Satsuki and her little sister Mei (voiced in English by Dakota Fanning and Elle Fanning) get away from it all in an idyllic rural retreat. Far from the bustle of the city, they discover a mysterious place of spirits and magic, and the friendship of the Totoro woodland creatures. Conceived as a family film devoid of conflict and suffused with the joy of country living, My Neighbour Totoro is a masterpiece for the whole family. It unites the unique vision of Hayao Miyazaki with a feel-good tale of childlike wonder and true originality. A universal classic for all generations, My Neighbour Totoro shows Japanese animation’s famous Studio Ghibli at its very best and is an elegy to two ever-fading miracles: the fairy-tale world of childhood and the disappearing countryside.

On paper I am an Italian living in London, in reality I was born and bread in a popcorn bucket. I've loved cinema since I was a little child and I’ve always had a passion and interest for Asian (especially Japanese) pop culture, food and traditions, but on the cinema side, my big, first love is Hong Kong Cinema. Then - by a sort of osmosis - I have expanded my love and appreciation to the cinematography of other Asian countries. I like action, heroic bloodshed, wu-xia, Shaw Bros (even if it’s not my specialty), Anime, and also more auteur-ish movies. Anything that is good, really, but I am allergic to rom-com (unless it’s a HK rom-com, possibly featuring Andy Lau in his 20s)"
