Spirited Away was written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki and released in 2001. It follows the story of a young girl traveling with her parents who, after they are turned into pigs, is forced to work in a bathhouse run by a witch. The movie gained critical acclaim around the world for its captivating story and visuals. It won several awards and was the highest-grossing film in Japan for 19 years until its record was broken by Demon Slayer: Kimtesu no Yaiba – The Movie: Mugen Train.
