    'Howl's' a natural draw for an anime master - LA Times 06/05/05

    'Howl's' a natural draw for an anime master

    Hayao Miyazaki made a tale by a British writer uniquely his, and now his hit film has an English-language version.

    Japanese animation has been influencing American pop culture for years now, appearing in everything from "Teen Titans" to Tarantino to Nike ads. How fitting, then, that Japan's top animator, Academy Award winner Hayao Miyazaki, still looks to Old Europe and English literature for inspiration.

    Miyazaki's latest project, "Howl's Moving Castle," is no exception. In fact, while many of his films feature castles, witches and Alsatian vistas, this is the first time he's directed a film adapted from Western source material. (He previously contributed as an animator to adaptations of "Heidi" and "Anne of Green Gables.")

    On Friday, Walt Disney Studios will release an English-language dub of "Howl's," in collaboration with Pixar Animation Studios and featuring the voices of an all-star cast led by Christian Bale, Jean Simmons and Billy Crystal.
