When released in 1997, Hayau Miyasaki’s epic
was the second-longest running Japanese animated film and the most expensive Japanese film of all time. Its success led Studio Ghibli to continue making amazing animated films such as
(2001). It’s impossible to cover every magical scene, but here are 15 gifs of our favorite moments from the film:
1. Our first look at the creepy crawly demon boar thingy. Gross.
I think he’s kinda cute though. Look at him go!

4. Let’s face it, Jigo is a jerk but we all fell in love with his shoes:
