When an unconfident young woman is cursed with an old body by a spiteful witch, her only chance of breaking the spell lies with a self-indulgent yet insecure young wizard and his companions in his legged, walking castle.
Howl's moving castle is actually centered around War and this is Miyazaki's main message throughout the film. However, interestingly enough, there is no mention at all of war in the novel the movie is based on.
Markl, make sure the cleaning lady doesn't get carried away while I'm gone.
Markl: Sophie, what did you do now?
Calcifer: She almost smothered me! If I die, Howl dies too, I hope you know.
Sophie's top ribbon doesn't always reappear when she transforms back into her younger self.
