"From the legendary Studio Ghibli, creators of Spirited Away, and acclaimed director Hayao Miyazaki, comes the Academy Award®- nominated fantasy adventure for the whole family. 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 curse on Sophie and turns her into a 90-year-old woman. On a quest to break the spell, Sophie climbs aboard Howl's magnificent moving castle and into a new life of wonder and adventure. But as the true power of Howl's wizardry is revealed, Sophie finds herself fighting to protect them both from a dangerous war of sorcery that threatens their world."

    This movie has been an all time favorite of mine. For those of you FOOLS saying it’s not in Japanese, YES IT IS. Update to the latest version of IOS and then you load up the movie, in EXTRAS there’s a version of it called subtitled, and it’s in the original Japanese audio. Both the English and Japanese versions have their own pros. It’s a great film either way. Don’t give a great film a bad review just because you don’t know what your doing or how to navigate your app.

  • Absolutely amazing!

    One of my favorite movies by far! It’s long but has a good plot, and the animation is great as usual! Though it is cheaper on Amazon for the folk who wanted to know. ($15.99 on HD and $11.99 on SD.)
  • It’s okay

    By Tori Birb
    I was so excited to watch it because I really liked the book. And I expected to be amazing because it’s a Studio Ghibli film but it was nothing like the book. Some parts where the same. But besides that I didn’t really enjoy it. The music and art is amazing don’t get me wrong but if you read the book you would see the difference.

    this has to be one of the best movies ever made because of its incredible character design, plot, and art style. One of those movies I could watch 109999 times and love it more every single time. :)

  • Howl is the best of the best

    By storytellerstudios
    If I had to choose only one Hayao Miyazaki film to watch, it would be either Howl's Moving Castle or Princess Mononoke. Howl is a masterpiece in every way. The animation is beyond anything I have ever seen. Every scene is rich with color and detail. I particularly love the background art, a hallmark of Miyazaki's Studio Ghibli. The story itself is very engaging and is filled with wondrous surprises- expect the unexpected. One minor criticism is the way the last scene so rapidly wraps up various storylines. Nevertheless, if you are new to Studio Ghibli, this film is a great way to start experiencing the amazing works of Hayao Miyazaki, the "Walt Disney of the East".
