Fact Forty:

Nausicaä’s Theme, the haunting song featuring a child’s voice that played throughout the movie, was actually sung by the young daughter of Joe Hisaishi (real name Mamoru Fujisawa), the man behind the musical scores of nearly every Studio Ghibli movie from My Neighbor Totoro to Kaze Tachinu. Mai Fujisawa (or simply Mai 麻衣 as she’s known to her fans) grew up to become a professional singer, and even went on to singKokoro no Kakera, the beautiful theme tune for the Japanese version of the Level-5 and Studio Ghibli-developed video game Ni no Kuni.
