I’ve got a couple scans from the schwag they gave us at the Howl’s Moving Castle early release party.  The other one is a poster I scanned on our really expensive scanner, so it’s going to take a while to crop and resize on this jicky-ass computer I have.


On the other hand, the postcard scanned nicely.  They copy from the back of the postcard reads as follows:

A Hayao Miyazaki Film
Howl’s Moving Castle

One of the most original, influential and visionary filmmakers in animation, Hayao Miyazaki’s work has often been compared to that of Walt Disney.  He has earned the reputation of being a modern master of Japanese cinema.  In 2003, Miyazaki’s previous masterpiece, Spirited Away, won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film, and continues to rank as the all-time, top-grossing film in Japanese box office history.  His latest feature, Howl’s Moving Castle, based on a novel by Diana Wynne Jones, comes to domestic audiences in a newly dubbed English language version directed by Pixar Animation Studios’ Pete Docter (director of Monsters, Inc.) and Disney’s Rick Dempsey.

In Howl’s Moving Castle, Miyazaki explores such themes as the power of love and the strength of the human spirit in the face of adversity.  In this epic tale, Miyazaki has created some of his most unique and memorable characters to date that include powerful wizards, a wicked witch, a wisecracking demon, and a young girl who is transformed into a 90–year-old woman by a mysterious curse.  Together they embark on a magical adventure aboard an enchanted castle that will completely tranform their lives.
