I also had another thought for a film that I don't believe anyone has
mentioned yet - /Spirited Away - /the English-dubbed version of a
Japanese animated film that won the 2003 Oscar. It is a marvelous fairy
tale of a girl who ends up in a world of spirits and, among other
adventures, has to stand up to some very unusual spirit characters,
befriend a dragon, and rescue her parents, who have been turned into
pigs. It is also a great cross-cultural experience because of the
Japanese setting and mythology. I loved this so much I have rented it
three times total, and I seldom do that for a movie. I highly recommend
checking it out!
