FILM 1169: NAUSICAÄ OF THE VALLEY OF THE WIND
TRIVIA: Hayao Miyazaki was so upset by the original international cut version that he sent a samurai sword to the Executive at Disney with a simple note which read: "No cuts."
Nausicaä is the name of a character in Homer's Odyssey.
The military planes invading the Valley have yellow wingtip undersides. Hitler's Luftwaffe had similar yellow identification markings during German invasions of surrounding countries.
Ohmu means "king of the insects" in Japanese. It is short for "O-mushi" ("big/great insect").
While many consider this to be a Studio Ghibli film, it was actually created before the studio was properly founded. The first movie produced by Studio Ghibli was "Castle in the Sky."
