Fishy Circumstances

Howl's Moving Castle

There's a Japanese trailer out for Howl's Moving Castle now!

The preview was just about perfect. No, the outside of the castle isn't like it is in the book, but it's something I can forgive given how much character the thing has and how good everything else about the trailer was. It's currently anticipated as a fall release in Japan.

And Calcifer is so cute!

(More movie-making gossip here.)

P.S. In case you thought this post was entirely unrelated to the King Arthur posts I've been making... Diana Wynne Jones, author of Howl's Moving Castle, also wrote The Merlin Conspiracy.

Today's King Arthur news

Thanks to my correspondent of colins_journal fame, I bring you the most cutting edge (!) King Arthur news yet. This newsbite is entirely unrelated to the movie, other than the similarity of names involved.

From an article in The Scotsman: "A druid swordbearer appeared in court today charged with possessing an offensive weapon." King Arthur appeared in court this morning to give legal council to the swordbearer in question.
