Miyazaki's upcoming movie: Howl's Moving Castle

Scott sez: "Hayao Miyazaki's next film is Howl's Moving Castle. Based on a 1986 children's novel by Diana Wynne Jones about a girl who is transformed into an old woman by a wizard's spell. If Spirited Away doesn't get nominated (and win) for Best Animated Picture I'm gonna scream. Disney should be pushing that campaign like there's no tomorrow — all their "in-house" crap pales in comparison. Isn't about time Hollywood acknowledges Miyazaki's genius … they've been cannibalising his work for years.

Another major animation announcement covered in this article is the release date for the often delayed Steamboy, Katsuhiro Otomo's first feature-length film in fifteen years, since his influential 1988 hit Akira.
