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.
In the novel by Diane Wynne Jones, Markl's character is actually called Michael.
So you are going away. Please, Howl. I know I can be of help to you, even though I'm not pretty and all I'm good at is cleaning.
Howl: Sophie! Sophie! You're beautiful!
Old Sophie: Well, the nice thing about being old is you've got nothing much to lose.
When Sophie leaves her bedroom, her dress has turned from green to blue. However, she couldn't have changed dresses because none of them would fit her after she was transformed (wider, much shorter, etc.).
