Kidzworld reviews the new Disney anime flick - Spirited Away. Catch up on Disney's latest and see the trailer for Spirited Away!

Spirited Away is an animated story about a young girl named Chihiro (voiced by AI's Daveigh Chase,) and the adventure she stumbles into while moving to a new town. Her family comes across a mysterious archway in the forest that lands Chihiro in a magical land of spirits, witches, dragons and excitement. When Spirited Away opened in theaters in Japan it became the #1 movie overnight and was still bringing in crowds of moviegoers months after it came out. How good is this Disney flick? Can it stand up to Hollywood blockbusters like Spider-Man and Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones?

First off, Spirited Away is gorgeous. It has some of the best animation you'll ever see which matches perfectly with the incredible imagination of the director, Miyazaki. Every bush, building, creature and spirit in Spirited Away looks incredible. From gross Stink Spirits to cute lil' dust critters and gigantic babies, the animated world Chihiro ends up in is full of incredible sights and sounds.

One thing about Spirited Away that's a lot different from most Hollywood flicks is that it's not totally rushed. It takes its time to tell you a story and show you a fantastic world. If you're sick of in-your-face, high-speed, cotton candy movies, then Spirited Away is an awesome change. It'll let you sit down and chill with your fave hottie - and enjoy the visuals.

Bottom line? If you're looking for a really cool movie that's got and easygoing style and doesn't try to impress you by blowing everything up, Spirited Away is the flick for you. It's definitely one of the coolest Disney movies this year.
