The storyboards for Howl’s Moving Castle, drawn by Miyazaki-san himself ( just as he did for most of his other films ) allows you relive the film again at your own pace, shot by shot. At a whopping 648 pages, this is even thicker than the Princess Mononoke storyboard book.
Howl’s Moving Castle isn’t one of my favourite Ghibli films ( in my opinion Miyazaki-san’s best works are still the ones where he created his own stories and characters, and not adaptations ), but looking through these meticulously drawn boards make me want to re-watch the film again.
(above) The level of detail Miyazaki-san put in for these storyboards are just unbelievable – but better still, his Ponyo storyboards are in full color.
The blu-ray version of the film is now available – we just need Ghibli to release my favourite, Princess Mononoke.
