Neil Gaiman continues to speak out about why he was excluded from the film poster of Studio Ghibli’s “Princess Mononoke” after writing the script for the English-dubbed version in 1999.

The “Sandman” and “American Gods” author revealed in response to a tweet from a fan that his name “was taken off the poster by Miramax execs who were told by Ghibli that there were too many names on the poster. So they kept theirs on and took mine off. Which wasn’t quite what Ghibli had intended.”
