Hayao Miyazaki, the legendary director who thriulled international audiences with SPIRITED AWAY, brings another visually spectacular tale of imagination, now available for the first time in stunning high-def. Sophie is an 18-year-old girl who toils in the hat shop opened years ago by her late father. Often ganged up on by local boys, one day Sophie is unexpectedly befriended by Howl, a strange but flamboyant wizard whose large home can travel under its own power. However, the Witch of the Waste is displeased with Sophie and Howl's budding friendship, and turns the pretty young woman into an ugly and aged hag. Sophie takes shelter in Howl's castle, and attempts to find a way to reverse the witch's spell with the help of Calcifer, a quiet but powerful demon who exists in the form of fire, and Markl, who protects the four-way door which can instantly take visitors to other lands and dimensions. Adapted from the much loved source novel by acclaimed children’s author Dianne Wynne Jones, HOWLS MOVING CASTLE was Academy award nominated in 2006 for Best Animated Feature and features the voices of Christian Bale, Lauren Bacall, Blythe Danner and Emily Mortimer.
