RELEASE DESCRIPTION

This masterful album Includes 9 symphonic tracks from animated film "Nausicaa Of The Valley Of Wind" by Hayao Miyazaki was arranged and conducted by legendary composer Joe Hisaishi. The cover art depicts Nausicaa heading off on a journey.

Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (Japanese: 風の谷のナウシカ, Hepburn: Kaze no Tani no Naushika) is a 1984 Japanese anime film written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki, based on his 1982 manga. It was animated by Topcraft for Tokuma Shoten and Hakuhodo, and distributed by the Toei Company. Joe Hisaishi, in his first collaboration with Miyazaki, composed the score. The film stars the voices of Sumi Shimamoto, Goro Naya, Yoji Matsuda, Yoshiko Sakakibara, and Iemasa Kayumi. Taking place in a future post-apocalyptic world, the film tells the story of Nausicaä (Shimamoto), the young princess of the Valley of the Wind. She becomes embroiled in a struggle with Tolmekia, a kingdom that tries to use an ancient weapon to eradicate a jungle full of giant mutant insects. Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind was released in Japan on 11 March 1984. A heavily edited adaptation of the film created by Manson International, Warriors of the Wind, was released in the United States and other markets throughout the mid-to-late 1980s. The Manson cut was derided by Miyazaki and eventually replaced in circulation by an uncut, redubbed version produced by Walt Disney Pictures in 2005. Though it was made before Studio Ghibli was founded, it is often considered a Ghibli work and was released as part of the Studio Ghibli Collection DVD and Blu-ray range. The film received critical acclaim, with praise being directed at the story, themes, characters, and animation. It is the highest-ranked Japanese anime in a survey published by the Japan's Agency for Cultural Affairs in 2007. The products in this collection are inspired by the worlds of Hayao Miyazaki’s beloved films.

These exclusive products were produced with Studio Ghibli in Japan and in conjunction with the Academy Museum’s landmark exhibition on the acclaimed filmmaker—bring a piece of Miyazaki’s whimsical worlds home with you today! Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind © 1984 Studio Ghibli
