Abstract

Howl's Moving Castle (2004), commonly known as a highly acclaimed animation film directed by the master filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki, was based on a teen fiction novel written by the late author Diana Wynne Jones. Miyazaki adapted the book and transformed it into one of his beloved animation films. Although the concept and the overall message is the same, this paper has the objective of carefully analyzing the differences concerning the characters, the plot and the message between the novel and the motion picture, as well as comparing the film version to Miyazaki's personal aesthetic and his train of thought in order to understand where the differences are coming from.
