Howl's Moving Castle "Sequel"

posted on by Christopher Macdonald
Museum Exhibition Planned as "Sequel" to Popular Movie

Starting in Golden Week (April 29th to May 5th), for a period of 100 days an exhibition entitled "Howl's Moving Castle - Big Circus Unfolds" will be displayed at the Tokyo Museum of Contemporary Art.

The exhibition was planned as a method to not only allow people to remember the film's beauty, but also imagine what happens to the characters after the movie's ending.

The exhibition focuses on what happens to the character's of the movie, including the heroine Sophie, after the end of movie, when they have formed the circus group.

The characters, Sophie, Howl, the Witch, Markl and even the dog Heen, are displayed in the form of mechanical puppets performing circus stunts. The exhibition's surrounding area has been set-up with a circus theme, with an old-style circus tend, a courtyard and other "surprises."

This is the first time that the museum is occupied by the same exhibition for a period as long as 100 days.
