When young Haru one day saves a cat from being run over by a car, she inadvertently ends up being engaged to Lune, prince of the Cat Kingdom. Thrust into the secret and intrigue-ridden world of felines, she must find a way to get back to the real world before she herself is transformed into a cat. An impressively assured debut feature from long-time animator Hiroyuki Morita, THE CAT RETURNS is a classic Ghibli adventure which proves that the legendary studio is more than Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata.
