Kure­nai No Buta (Porco Rosso) (1992) — Stu­dio Ghi­bli The­atri­cal Film

The adven­tures of a 1930s bush pilot who just hap­pens to have the head of a pig. In 1930s Balkans, only one pilot rules the skies: Porco Rosso, a tal­ented pilot who, due to a magic spell, has been trans­formed into a pig. Porco lives a happy life as a pilot for hire pro­tect­ing air­ships from maraud­ing pilots, rest­ing on his pri­vate island and vis­it­ing his friend, beau­ti­ful hotel-owner Gina. But when a hot-headed Amer­i­can pilot arrives look­ing to make a name for him­self by shoot­ing down The Crim­son Pig, Porco gets his bat­tered plane back into shape with the help of a feisty teenage engi­neer called Fio.
