Among the hidden gems that anime has available on Netflix we can find Spirited Away. At its premiere it was the highest grossing film in Japan for the genre, in 2001.
Its popularity grew during the most critical moments of the pandemic caused by covid-19. His entry into the content platform made him gain recognition among millions of followers who reproduced this wonderful story.
It is also, with a lot of humility, a feature film that won the Oscar for Best Animated Film in 2002. At that time it beat productions like Lilo & Stitch and Ice Age.
The film tells the story of a ten-year-old girl named Chihiro, who during a move is trapped in a magical and supernatural world. She then, in this way she begins a complex mission to seek her freedom and that of her parents, in order to return to the world of reality.
Does Spirited Away deserve a live action?
Whether Spirited Away deserves a live action is a highly debatable question. On one hand, we would all like to see a talented portrayal of a little girl venturing into a fantasy world.
But on the other hand, they risk damaging a story that is already perfect in the version found on Netflix. There is a play about this film, which could count as live action, but the feature film as such, in the cinema, does not yet exist.
While they wait to see if it’s done or not, a Twitter user who found the people of The Trade of Perucalled @levmauc, has asked an Artificial Intelligence to show him what a live action of Spirited Away would be like and the result is simply brutal.
