Good news for Studio Ghibli fans: Just days after Hayao Miyazaki announced that he’s coming out of retirement to make one more film, IndieWire reports that the legendary director’s Academy Award-winning animated classic, Spirited Away, will be making its way back into theaters next month.

In celebration of the film's 15th anniversary, Fathom Events is teaming up with GKIDS for a two-day tribute to Spirited Away in early December that will see both the English-dubbed (featuring the voices of Daveigh Chase, Michael Chiklis, and John Ratzenberger) and the English-subtitled versions of the film be screened. The feature will be accompanied by Ghiblies: Episode 2, a 25-minute comedic look at Studio Ghibli’s staff that was made in 2002 and has never been released in North America.

Spirited Away will return to more than 400 theaters nationwide on Sunday, December 4 and Monday, December 5. Go to Fathom Events for more information, including a complete list of theaters and showtimes.
