Something is amiss in the mythical land of the title, and
it's up to a mighty wizard (voice of Timothy Dalton) and his
princely apprentice (voice of Matt Levin) to set things

Willem Dafoe) with a mania for immortality at any cost.
Though unusually dark for a Disney offering, and technically
less than top-flight, director Goro Miyazaki's Japanese anime
adaptation of the popular book series by Ursula K. Le
Watch out for: Guin features an epic battle between
good and evil tinged with Christian symbolism. Stylized
cartoon violence, including stabbings and strangulations,
instances of drug use and fantasy witchcraft.
Rated: A-II; MPAA: PG-13
