Introduction to the movie My Neighbour Totoro (Tonari no Totoro)

My Neighbour Totoro is a Japanese animation (anime) movie by director Hayao Miyazaki. It was released in 1988.

The story is about two sisters, Satsuki (who is ten years old) and Mei (who is four), who move to a house in the countryside with their father. This is to be closer to their mother, who is recovering from an illness in a hospital nearby.

While living in their new home, Satsuki and Mei make friends with their neighbours, a boy named Kanta and his grandmother.

However, they also encounter many new creatures and spirits. One of these spirits is a large furry grey creature named Totoro, who is known as the keeper or guardian of the forest.

Over time, the two sisters make friends with Totoro. One day, Satsuki encounters a problem and finds that she has to ask Totoro and his friend the Catbus for help!
