88 of Hayao Miyazaki’s Beautiful Backgrounds from Spirited Away

Hayao Miyazaki 33

There is simply no animator working today that can compare to Hayao Miyazaki and his Studio Ghibli. His stories are great, but it’s his animation that’s truly awe-inspiring, and perhaps there’s no better example of that than his work on Spirited Away.

Yes, the creatures and characters in that film and his others are fantastic, but it’s these gorgeous backgrounds that are simply out of this world. Sometimes quite literally. This gallery has a full eighty eight shots of the detail in these backgrounds, some pulled from the film, some from other artwork relating to the movie.

Check them all out below. You won’t be disappointed.
