    The Magical Mystery Tour

    ... is coming to take you away - Hayao Miyazaki digs deep into his subconscious to excavate wondrous, animated dreamscapes

    And we have no choice but to follow him. Even during the last chapter of George Lucas' "Star Wars" saga, some of us were thinking: Cute but now let's get back to the true fantasist, Hayao Miyazaki.

    The arrival of "Howl's Moving Castle," after huge success in Japan, confirms that the animation Merlin is the supreme "imagineer" of our time. The story of a plucky girl who learns from her suddenly old self, it has a walking junk-pile castle and a lithe, secretive hero, and is the master's most fluent extravagance so far.
    Miyazaki's crisply modern but jammed team shop, Studio Ghibli, will never match the square footage (or profits) of the Disney domain in Burbank. His virtually handcrafted Ghibli Museum might make you hum "It's a Small World" in relation to the Disney parks, yet not since the apex years of Walt Disney has a cartoon genius so enthralled so many people.

    It speaks of synergy, touched by envy, that Disney (still licking its Pixar divorce wound) releases Miyazaki's films in America. The paint-box colors and pillowy clouds, the big-eyed kids and gentle beasts, the Late Victorian deja-vu detailings of Disney's classic works are all given a more than conceptual rehab. Unlike the inspired but generic and imperatively corporate Disney, Miyazaki, who lives light and still dreams by pencil and paper, seems to pull his films from a zone of privacy.
