I always like watching Studio Ghibli movies because of how beautiful the hand drawn animation is. It’s always so pretty to watch. This story is a lot simpler than their usual movies, but it’s still very sweet. This is probably the closest to an actual kids/family movie that I have seen from them. Having it rooted in history is really interesting though. It added a lot of context to the story. Also, having a voice cast that includes Anton Yelchin, Jamie Lee Curtis, Ron Howard, Christina Hendricks, and Aubrey Plaza, (just to name a few) doesn’t hurt. Overall, this isn’t Spirited Away or Kiki’s Delivery Service, but this is still a sweet, family centric movie that is worth the watch.
