Studio Ghibli fans might be disappointed to know that Spirited Away recently lost the title of highest grossing anime movie to the phenomenon known as Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. However, there is plenty of good news on the horizon. For one thing Studio Ghibli is working on an amusement park, which will bring to life a number of their biggest stories to life. Spirited Away will be one of the films that inspire a location within the amusement park, as will the likes of Princess Mononoke, My Neighbor Totoro, and Howl's Moving Castle to name a few.
A synopsis for Spirited Away reads: "Chihiro's family is moving to a new house, but when they stop on the way to explore an abandoned village, her parents undergo a mysterious transformation and Chihiro is whisked into a world of fantastic spirits ruled over by the sorceress, Yubaba. Put to work in a magical bathhouse for spirits and demons, Chihiro must use all her wits to survive in this strange new place, find a way to free her parents and return to the normal world."
