A stunning tale of freedom, flight and adventure! PORCO ROSSO is the story of Marco "Porco" Rosso, a valiant World War I flying ace, whose face has been transformed into that of a pig by a mysterious spell. When Marco's aerial heroics exasperate a band of sky pirates, they hire Curtis, a comical rival pilot, to "get rid" of him.

On the ground, the two pilots compete over the affections of a beautiful cabaret singer. But it is in the air, with Fio, a young and talented airplane engineer/designer, that "Porco" Rosso learns the secrets that keep him one step ahead of Curtis. With courage, pride, and a ride you'll never forget, PORCO ROSSO beats the odds.

From its Mediterranean Sea settings to its dazzling aerial dogfights of amazing sweep and grace, PORCO ROSSO is full of humor, courage and compelling characters. PORCO ROSSO is one of Japan's highest-grossing films of all time. The English language version of this high-flying adventure features the voice talents of Michael Keaton ("Batman Returns"), Brad Garrett (TV's "Everybody Loves Raymond"), Susan Egan ("Spirited Away"), Kimberly Williams (TV's "According To Jim") and David Ogden Stiers ("Lilo & Stitch").
