GKIDS is getting My Neighbor Totoro into theaters at the end of August as part of the Ghibli Fest 2019 event and they’re doing some new promotion for it. With the film scheduled for an August 25th, 26th, and 28th debut as part of the festival, they’ve now brought out a second teaser trailer for it to get people excited about seeing it on the big screen, whether for the first time or for a new showing. The film received a 30th-anniversary edition back on December 11th, 2018 that has the Blu-ray of the film, the soundtrack CD, and a book for it priced at $49.97.
Plot Concept: When Satsuki and her sister Mei move with their father to a new home in the countryside, they find country life is not as simple as it seems. They soon discover that the house and nearby woods are full of strange and delightful creatures, including a gigantic but gentle forest spirit called Totoro, who can only be seen by children. Totoro and his friends introduce the girls to a series of adventures, including a ride aboard the extraordinary Cat Bus, in this all-ages animated masterpiece featuring the voices of Tim Daly, Lea Salonga, and real-life sisters Dakota and Elle Fanning, in one of their earliest roles.
