About This Item

Tokyo: Toei Animation, 1968. Vintage post-production script for the animated 1968 Japanese film "Horus: Prince of the Sun," also known under the title "The Little Norse Prince." This listing also includes a pamphlet of character designs for the film.

A milestone in the history of Japanese animation, heralded as the first animated feature to successfully disrupt the Walt Disney paradigm, and seen as one of the first to intentionally address an adult audience. Isao Takahata's directorial debut, and the first major film of famed Studio Ghibli director Hayao Miyazaki, who worked on scene design and key animation for the film. Ostensibly a film about young boy living in ancient Scandinavia who must help instill a community to fight against a great oppressor, it carried a strong pro-union and pro-Socialist subtext, as Takahata and Miyazaki were staunch union organizers. Studio Toei executives, in part in retaliation, released the film into theaters for only ten days, and it would be some years before the feature would be appreciated fully.

Off white wrappers, perfect bound with black titles. Title page present. 164 leaves, with last page of text numbered 61. Xerographic duplication, with pink, orange, green, and yellow revision pages. Pages lightly toned else Fine, wrapper Near Fine.
