The following twelve-page study guide film packet is used to accompany the Hayao Miyazaki-directed 1997 animated fantasy epic "Princess Mononoke." It can be used in an English or film studies classroom. The first page contains a list of cast and crew and a background and introduction on the film from Wikipedia. The second page is a page that allows viewers to jot and take down their own notes. Pages three, four, five, six, seven, eight, and nine contain comprehension questions to guide the viewer on the work's camera movement, characterization, cinematography, conflict, costume design, dialogue, editing, foreshadowing, inferences, irony, mise en scene, mood, movement, pacing, plot, setting, sound, story, symbolism, and tragic flaws. The tenth and eleventh pages contain discussion questions on the work's American voice casting, characterization, conflict, plot, and themes. The twelfth page is a genre study page that asks students to analyze how "Princess Mononoke" compares in subject matter, style/techniques, and morals/ideologies/themes to other films in the epic and romantic epic subgenre.
