Spirited Away (2001)
A stuffed tiger that looks like 'Tiny' can be seen lying around in the baby's room
Chihiro runs down the staircase just like when Lupin ran down the rooftop.
The scene in which Chihiro looks up at the radish spirit in the elevator, he narrows his eyes at her and grunts, replicating the bus stop scene with Satsuki and Totoro. When Chihiro is riding Haku back to bath house, she mentions how she almost drowned in a river and subsequently lost her pink shoe, this is the same shoe that was believed to be Mei's in 'Tonari no Totoro. Also, the soot gremlins appear in both films.
the boiler man has the face of a bar patron from the earlier film
In the beginning of the film, Lin enters the boiler room and exclaims, "Chow time!" before she hands over the food. This is a direct reference by Miyazaki to Edward's line "Chow time!" in Cowboy Bebop before she eats.
The movie that's planned for a Summer 2001 release is this movie.
Referenced by name.
A subway train is the only way to go between worlds. Also, the moment when Haku stands up to that Ubaba lady, it looks JUST like NEO standing before the Deus Ex Machina in the machine city, just flopped. note how Ubaba is mostly a big head, and how she charges at Haku with hair swirling around Haku while he remains calm.
