This Year’s STUDIO GHIBLI FEST Lineup Concludes With Hayao Miyazaki’s ‘Howl’s Moving Castle’ in U.S. Cinemas on November 26, 27 & 29
- WHAT: STUDIO GHIBLI FEST, a six film monthly series of anime classics, comes to a close for 2017 with the animated masterpiece, “Howl’s Moving Castle,” from the legendary Studio Ghibli and director Hayao Miyazaki. This special event will play in movie theaters nationwide for three days only on November 26, 27 and 29, from Fathom Events and GKIDS.
“Howl’s Moving Castle” is an acclaimed fantasy based on the novel of the same name, and the second Studio Ghibli film (after “Spirited Away”) to be nominated for Best Animated Feature at the Academy Awards. Sophie, an average teenage girl working in a hat shop, finds her life thrown into turmoil when she is literally swept off her feet by a handsome but mysterious wizard named Howl. However, after this chance meeting, the young girl is turned into a 90-year old woman by the vain and conniving Witch of the Waste. Embarking on an incredible adventure to lift the curse, she finds refuge in Howl’s magical moving castle.
This event also features the GKIDS MINIFEST, an ongoing festival of award-winning short animated films from around the world, as part of the exclusive event experience.
