— by Zhang Pinghui: Eighteen years after its official release, Hayao Miyazaki’s award-winning animated movie Spirited Away will finally be shown in mainland Chinese cinemas.

An official account on China’s Twitter-like Weibo brought a message from Sina Movie on Friday that “Spirited Away will arrive soon!”

“Life is a one-way train. Very pleased to meet you at this stop. It’s a long wait of 18 years. Please treat me well,” the film announcement on Weibo said. “This will be our first official meeting after 18 years of climbing mountains and crossing seas,” it said, accompanied by a photo of heroine Chihiro riding a train with No Face.

The official opening date for the film has yet to be announced…
