Oscar-winning director Hayao Miyazaki, Japan's premier animator and co-founder of Studio Ghibli, takes viewers on an amazing animated adventure that celebrates the power of love to transform and the resiliency of the human spirit in the face of adversity.

Sophie, an ordinarily average teenage girl working in a hat shop, finds her life thrown into turmoil when she is literally swept off her feet by a handsome but mysterious wizard named Howl and is subsequently turned into a 90 year old woman by the vain and conniving Wicked Witch of the Waste. Embarking on an incredible odyssey to lift the curse, she finds refuge in Howl's magical moving castle where she becomes acquainted with Markl, Howl's apprentice, and a hot-headed fire demon named Calcifer. Sophie's love and support comes to have a major impact on Howl, who flies in the face of orders from the palace to become a pawn of war and instead risks his life to help bring peace to the kingdom...

Extraordinary characters, inventive imagery and stunning hand-drawn cel frame artistry make this latest masterpiece from the visionary Miyazaki an unforgettable experience!

I'll admit to being a big fan of animated films but I haven't seen too many japanese animated films and after seeing Howls Moving Castle I can do nothing more then recomend this film to any true film fanatic as it is nothing more then pure genius.
From the beginning to the end it keeps you entertained in its weird and wonderful way and the characters in their own right are worthy of watching this film.
It is a family film and its not just for kids as im 27 and I loved it to pieces, it has definatly prompted me to watch more japanese animated films.
Definatly worth a watch.

 studio ghibli at it's best!

This is THE best ghibli film ever! THE BEST animation of the year hands down. It is somewhat different to the other ghibli films but in a really good way. It is absoloutely beautiful, romantic, the fantasy and storyline will blow you away, this is a masterpiece!!
