I can not remember much but I have had this film in my head for years I searched everything I can remember on every website I can think of.

I don't remember the exact story but I'll list everything about it can

  • Apocalyptic future possibly
  • Two main characters: a boy and a girl riding ostrich-like creatures through a valley
  • An old blind lady that senses things
  • Crashed spaceship looking like a submarine
  • Giant creatures looks like yaks with blue eyes, whose eyes turn red when something is about to happen
  • The old lady says "Some say they went to the stars" while looking at the spaceship
  • The two main characters do something and their eyes turn blue in the distance and the village cheers

This film is at least ten years old and I would appreciate it so much if you knew anything about it, or could help me find the title.

  • I immediately thought of the Disney movie Swiss Family Robinson where the strabded kids rode on actual ostriches.

This is Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind.

The giant creatures with the red eyes and the submarine in the desert are a dead giveaway,.
