With the official blessing of Studio Ghibli, it's revealed that a major UK theatre company is working on a stage adaptation of Princess Mononoke, slated for April 2013.

Tickets sold out in a matter of hours. According to MTV Geek,

The production will be comprised of giant puppets made of recycled materials and live, original music (although Joe Hisaishi's score is nothin' to sneeze at) to tell the story of Prince Ashitaka, cursed by a demon and exiled from his home as he seeks a cure.
