I am seeking contributions of between 5-6,000words on Hayao Miyazaki's Princess Mononoke (Mononoke Hime), for an edited collection intended to form part of Bloomsbury's Animation: Key Films series. Princess Mononoke sits at a nexus point in Studio Ghibli's industrial history: it was the first film released in the USA through the Tokuma-Buena Vista International deal; it contained early experiments in mixing Studio Ghibli's much-lauded hand-drawn animation with CG-animated sequences; it broke box-office records in Japan; and, it cemented Hayao Miyazaki's global status as a "master" of animation aesthetics.
