Introduction

The movie, My Neighbor Totoro, was released in Japan in 1988 and became a huge hit with not just children but anime lovers as well. The movie was exclusively shown on Japan Airlines for four years when their rights to the film expired, and the United States started selling the movie in 1994. It was remade and released again by Disney in 2005. The movie was about a huge furry creature who meets two sisters and helps them get through some tough times. In addition, animal lovers just adored that giant sleepy furball, Totoro, which is a fantasy animal of some kind that's supposed to be a forest spirit that protects animals as well as children.
