Animated Views and Disney are giving you a chance to win a Studio Ghibli Prize Package worth $50! All you have to do is fill out the form below. One randomly selected winner will receive the new Blu-ray editions of My Neighbor Totoro and Howl's Moving Castle! One entry per household please. The last day to enter is May 22.
Lauded as "one of the most beloved of all family films" by critic Roger Ebert, My Neighbor Totoro is the heartwarming story of sisters Satsuki (voiced by Dakota Fanning) and Mei (voiced by Elle Fanning). Much to their delight, when Satsuki and her four-year-old sister Mei move into a new home in the countryside, they discover that their new neighbor is a mysterious forest spirit called Totoro—who can be seen only through the eyes of children. Totoro introduces them to extraordinary characters - including a catbus - and takes them on an incredible journey.
Brimming with a blend of imagination, humor, action and romance, Howl's Moving Castle is the story of Sophie (voiced by Emily Mortimer), a diligent teenage girl working in her family's hat shop, who finds her life thrown into turmoil when she is literally swept off her feet by a handsome-but-mysterious wizard named Howl (voiced by Christian Bale). The innocent encounter engages the vain and conniving "Witch of the Waste" (voiced by Lauren Bacall), who transforms Sophie into a 90-year old woman (voiced by Jean Simmons). Sophie's efforts to break the curse bring her to Howl's magical moving castle, where she befriends Markl (voiced by Josh Hutcherson), Howl's apprentice, and the hot-headed fire demon Calcifer (voiced by Billy Crystal). Her love and support have a major impact on Howl, who can be maddeningly self-indulgent and singularly noble as he defies royal orders to participate in a meaningless war and risks his life to protect Sophie.
