Synopsis

From the famed Studio Ghibli, this Japanese animation introduces us to Howl, a short-tempered wizard who lives in a magical castle with legs that can grow and shrink in size. When Howl sees young hat-maker Sophie being persecuted by soldiers, he intervenes and saves her - but this makes the Witch of the Waste jealous, leading her to turn Sophie into an old, creaky woman. We follow Sophie's story as she struggles to make her way to the castle to get her curse reversed - while at the same time, the country begins preparing for a war. A fantastic and imaginative treat from the mind of Hayao Miyazaki, this is a delightful entry point into Japanese animation whilst also asking questions around the importance of growing and evolving our personalities.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."
