On April 5, 1986, Diana Wynne Jones wrote and published Howl’s Moving Castle despite having no involvement with the film. From that, we collected Howl’s Moving Castle Quotes. It was eventually converted into a Japanese animated picture directed by Hayao Miyazaki, which premiered on September 5, 2004 at the Vence film festival.

The Studio Ghibli picture was released in English by Disney Studios. Sophie’s life is turned upside down when she is kidnapped by a mysterious magician named Howl.

The trash witch casts a curse on the young girl, turning her into an elderly woman. When she encounters a Howl, the spell is broken. She then battles to safeguard the planet from dangerous conflict and sorcery, both of which pose a threat.

And my heart—but you wouldn’t understand, you silly young demon!” Sophie panted. “You haven’t got a heart.” “Yes I have,” Calcifer said, as proudly as he had revealed his arm. “Down in the glowing part under the logs.
