Looking for an all encompassing answer, preferably one that addresses business aspects like distribution and demographics in addition to production aspects like story and appeal.

I also wonder if it was just a issue of economics (a better market today than ten years ago), or the power of premade fanbase.

    Inflation is probably also a factor. I wouldn't be surprised if Spirited Away's gross remained higher once you adjusted it for inflation. – F1Krazy Jan 29 at 23:24
