    Excerpt from AnimeNation:

    "Disney Blinks" is the title to a center front page article in the current Video Store Magazine industry mag. The article suggests that Buena Vista home video executives were not aware that there was interest and an actual demand for a Japanese language version of Princess Mononoke in the US before they were presented with the results of a fan organized letter-writing campaign and internet petition that garnered "4,500 signatures in the first week." The article confirms that the Princess Mononoke DVD has been delayed, but not canceled. "`We were pleasantly surprised by the interest in a Japanese soundtrack,` [said] Buena Vista marketing senior v.p. Robert Chapek. `It`s a fairly recent development, and with an August 29th street date [for the dub-only VHS version], there was no way we could accommodate that [due to the inability to conclude soundtrack negotiations with the Japanese producer in time]. So we had to push it off. We`re fairly confident the [special edition] DVD will be out sometime before the holidays.`"

    Mononoke has beautiful visuals, but I just couldn't get into it.

    I haved loved all the Miyazaki films I've seen (except for Totoro, which put me to sleep), but somehow I just could not develop an interest in what was going on or the characters in general, although I did like the young prince.

    Not a thumbs down by any means, but not a film that can approach my favorites list. I still like LAPUTA the best. Those danger-prone kids just amaze me!

    I drove about 3 hours to see princess mononoke when it went into limited release. I really enjoyed it but I think it lost alot in translation. I am looking forward to the dvd so I can enjoy a subtitled version. Also amazon has it listed for a jan 2001 release right now, but its worth the wait
    Also, princess mononoke is about a young man who fights to save a town from a war and at the same time save the forest around it from being mined for ore and destroyed. It strongly involves nature and the gods that make up the balance of the forest.
