This is personally my favorite Miyazaki movie. I remember first watching it with my dad when I was 7 years old. It was so odd yet I was so intrigued. It tells the story of a young girl named Sophie. She works in her family’s hat shop and finds herself and her life particularly average.

While closing shop one night, a wicked witch of the Waste comes in and curses Sophie with a spell that turns her into an old woman. The witch also cursed Sophie with never being able to speak about the spell. The witch disappears and Sophie sets out the next day to find the witch but stumbles upon Howl, a wizard, and his moving castle instead.

There she finds the comfort in new friends and acceptance in herself. She also discovers some of Howl’s dark secrets.
