 SPACE.com -- Climb Aboard 'Howl's Moving Castle'
The bones of the original, written by British author Diana Wynne Jones, are all there: Sophie (voiced by Emily Mortimer in the English-language version) is a young woman who is transformed into a humpbacked crone (voiced by two-time Oscar nominee Jean Simmons) by the malicious Witch of the Waste (Oscar nominee Lauren Bacall).
As he tries to blow apart the imperial airships responsible for the wreckage, the anti-war message is unmistakable, and unsurprising, considering that Miyazaki himself grew up the post-war tumult and desolation of post-war Japan.
The story's true central character isn't Sophie, but Howl's moving castle itself, which functions as both the setting of many scenes and the primary mode of transport--a magical door opens up into different locales depending on where the pointer of a multicolored dial is resting.
