Howl’s Moving Castle clears $200 million overseas; here, with the kind of release and publicity Disney is giving it, Howl will be supremely lucky to make a tenth of that. After all, Spirited Away took in less than $10 million in the US. Yet, it captured the Academy Award.

I hope Miyazaki’s latest feature gets both boffo box office and Oscar gold. It may not rank among Miyazaki’s best, but, as I’m sure many of you who know Miyazaki’s work, Miyazaki’s worst is far better than many of the best animated films coming out of studios stateside.
