Howl's Moving Castle (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo) Review


Synopsis: For the first time on Blu-ray, Disney proudly presents a remarkable Studio Ghibli film from Academy Award-winning director Hayao Miyazaki (best animated feature, 2001, Spirited Away). Howl’s Moving Castle soars like never before with a new HD digital transfer, and perfect picture and sound!

Sophie, a quiet 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. The vain and vengeful Witch of the Waste, jealous of their friendship, puts a spell on Sophie. In a life-changing adventure, Sophie climbs aboard Howl’s magnificent moving castle and enters a magical world on a quest to break the spell. Featuring the voice talents of Christian Bale and Billy Crystal, Miyazaki’s artistry comes to life with inventive characters, unique storytelling, and richly detailed animation. Your whole family will love this epic fantasy on Disney Blu-ray!

Review: No one does Japanese anime like Miyazaki.  Fortunately, thanks to John Lasseter being the head of Disney animation they are importing Miyazaki's fantastic and moving films.  This is the debut of Howl's Moving Castle on blu-ray high-definition!  The film, at it's heart, is a love story.  Its extremely dynamic and visually stunning.  We cannot recommend it enough.
