James and Nate talk about this gem from the 80s, which is currently on Netflix and began the Studio Ghibli empire. It's a much slower pace than we're used to - and maybe that's a good thing and worth a discussion. And what about sisters and the spirits? We're love to know what you made of this episode, the movie - and the Lion King remake from 2019.

Next time, My Neighbour Totoro which is currently on Netflix. But what about The Lion King remake in 2019?
