It was my understanding that Nausicaa was actually made before Studio Ghibli was formed. Miyazaki became a well known director for making Nausicaa, which was based off of his manga that he drew to promote the production of the film. Studio Ghibli was not formed until after the success of "My Neighbor totoro". Still, Nausicaa is one of my favorite Miyazaki films. Although, I could see a remake in the future, but the story holds up amazingly well, some of the techniques that were employed are starting to betray its age. the only problem would be to find a director as detailed as Miyazaki is. I don't have the faith in his son after "tales from EarthSea".
I don't know why most of my friends (TBH I have very little so that means ALL of my friends) don't like Nausicaa........and I LOVE THIS MOVIE!!! LOL It is AWESOME! This may be one of my favorite, out of all the once you made!
Haha That is Awesome, my first movie was Spirited Away. I was left alone at my friends house and he had a million movies and when I saw the cover of the movie I sat and watch...for .....many.....hours.......after that watching that movie (over 5 times and I still it) I fell in love with ghibli movies and decided to watch ALL of ghibli movies Nasuicaa was the third one. And at this moment I still have not watch all of ghibli movies......but soon I will have them ALL!! ( hopefully ^w^)
