I vaguely remember watching an animated movie as a kid where the main protagonists, a man and a woman, are in some kind of a battle.

The thing that I remember the most are these slug like large aliens/insects/monsters that have red orbs all over their body. At some point the woman is wounded/killed and is healed/revied by the creatures. They did this by lifting her up with glowing tentacles.

Here is a crude drawing of the creature: enter image description here

    Thanks, this is it. I'm pleasantly surprised that this looks much better than I remember, which is usually not the case. A big bonus that Hayao Miyazaki is involved :) Aug 23, 2017 at 17:58
