Product Shot 1 The Pros:Miyazaki (need I say more?). Contains all of the whimsy and wonder typical of a Hayao Miyazaki film. All-star English dub cast includes Christian Bale as Howl and Billy Crystal as Calcifer.

The Cons:Fans of the original novel may not like all of the changes made. Felt by some to be one of Miyazaki's weakest films.

Based on Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones. Howl's Moving Castle follows the story of young Sophie Hatter, a bookworm, the eldest of three daughters, a girl doomed to an uninteresting life as a hat maker.
