FROM TOR.COM:
"Alongside the strong female lead and the fascinating flying machines that would also become Miyazaki trademarks the movie has another important legacy — its bumbled US release. When New World pictures got their hands on the movie in the mid 80s they butchered it — heavily editing the story to remove it’s ecologically themes and leaving a terribly dubbed, dumbed-down shell they called Warriors of the Wind. Miyazaki was so dismayed with the results that he vowed to a strict “no edits” policy for all foreign releases when Studio Ghibli was formed — leading to the now infamous Harvey Weinstein story. Apparently upon hearing that the Miramax boss wanted to edit Princess Mononoke to make it more marketable, Ghibli sent him a Japanese katana sword with a brief, but clear message — “no cuts.”"
