Howl's Moving Castle (2004) HOME
I see no point in living if I can’t be beautiful  -  Howl, voiced by  (Batman) Christian Bale
1 2 3 H  (Top 3 Animation Films)

No pocket change here, Howl grossed $235,000,000 internationally and 4,000,000 in the U.S.
Dubbing an animated film made in another country presents the same challenges as dubbing a live action film since lip movements are not in sync.
I don’t cook! I’m a scary fire demon!

  Wonderfully imaginative, from the fantastical castle and the science fiction elements, to the character’s predicaments


  The animation backgrounds are quite beautiful.  A soothing treat for the eyes.


  Like Pixar and Disney films, fans and critics now debate which Miyazaki film is best.  This is a good thing - anime (Japanese animation) has been delivering the goods.
