Japan 2002 75 mins. In Japanese

In this magical blend of fantasy and fable from Studio Ghibli, Haru, a schoolgirl bored by her ordinary life, inadvertently saves the life of Lune, Prince of the Cat Kingdom. His royal father decides to thank her with a flurry of presents, including gift-wrapped mice. The only problem: the Cat King’s insistence that she marry his son! Haru’s unexpected journey into the Kingdom of Cats opens her eyes to a world she never expected, decisions she never had to consider, and a new appreciation of the life she once did not appreciate.
