Cartoon Production Information:

This was the first of Hayao Miyazaki's films to be released in the United States under a marketing agreement between Disney and Tokuma. It thus became the first of his films to gain attention in the West.

At the time of its release, it was the highest-grossing Japanese film of any kind.

The movie took 20 years to conceive and three more to produce.

Reportedly, preview audiences laughed nervously at a sequence in which a man's arm was shot off, as they didn't expect such violence in a movie distributed by Disney.

English translator Neil Gaiman also rewrote the script.

This was the first theatrical anime since 1994's "Armitage III" to use "name" actors in the English-language version.
