A plain young hatter named Sophie has her life changed when an evil witch transforms her into an old woman. Unable to face her family in such a condition, Sophie runs away in search of a way to become young again. Along the way, Sophie helps a turnip headed scarecrow, who repays her by leading her to the moving castle owned by the dreaded wizard Howl.

Reviews

   

If it weren't for the rushed / confusing nature of the last half hour of the movie, this would have easily earned five stars. Still, though, if you like Miyazaki's other films, you have to see this. - ThemAnime

    

If you're looking for quaint settings, dynamic characters and a very involving character or plot driven story, you're not going to necessarily find them here, but you will find an equally stunning and pleasing movie if you let yourself go and enjoy this passionate, heartfelt and surreal Miyazaki dream. - IMDB (surenm)
