In the original Japanese version of the film, a World Wildlife logo praising the film is displayed at the beginning. For the US release from Disney, this logo was replaced with a typical Studio Ghibli logo.
Released in the US and Europe in 1985 as "Warriors of the Wind". This version removed nearly 25 minutes of footage (including the entire opening credits sequence, much of Nausicaa exploring the toxic jungle, Yupa and Nausicaa's discussion in her laboratory, flashbacks of young Nausicaa defending the baby Ohmu, Asbel and Nausicaa's dialogue about the nature of the poisonous forest, several sequences leading up to the God Soldier, and the entirety of the ending credits montage save for the very last shot of Nausicaa's hat). In addition, character names were changed and most of the dialogue was completely rewritten with no regard for the film's plot.
