Nausicaa, a gentle young princess from a village-sized kingdom, has an empathetic bond with the giant mutated insects that evolved in the wake of the destruction of the ecosystem. Traveling by cumbersome flying ships, on the backs of giant birds, and perched atop her beloved glider, Nausicaa and her allies must appease the anger and fears of nations and people alike, all the while trying to convince the belligerents of the truth she has learned regarding their environment…
Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind was released in Japan on 11 March 1984. Though it was made before Studio Ghibli was founded, it is often considered a Ghibli work, and was released as part of the Studio Ghibli Collection DVD and Blu-ray range.

Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (Japanese: 風の谷のナウシカ Hepburn: Kaze no Tani no Naushika) is a 1984 Japanese animated epic science fantasy adventure film adapted and directed by Hayao Miyazaki, based on his 1982 manga of the same name.
The animation was great for the era it was created in, but still good in today standard.
The pieces of music are beautiful, especially the opening theme “Kaze no Tani no Nausicaä” (風の谷のナウシカ; Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind) by Joe Hisaishi.
The story is well written, engaging, and inspiring. This is one of the earliest anime I can recall that featured a strong leading female. Nausicaa, our main lead, is a likable character. Though overly optimistic, she is still subtle enough to be a believable character, which we feel invested in.
The Ohm can be frightening and cute at the same time. I would definitely buy an Ohm plushy if I see one.
I highly recommend this movie to the fan of a well-written story filled with hopes and adventure. Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind contains some graphic violence. Appropriate for everyone, but parental guidance is advised.
