** This makes perfect sense since JohnLasseter worked on ''Princess'' and he is good friends with Miyazaki, often sneaking in references to his movies, like the less-subtle giant Totoro plushie in ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3''.

*If the curse is still there, it would make Sophie practically immortal due to the fact her willpower seems to have grown so powerful that all the heartbreak at the end was not enough to make her revert.

* You know, I really like that theory. Howl 'can't' love, and he's gone most of the time really. But Calcifer is there with Sophie, and Howl comes to love her through his eyes (read heart). ~ Depending how you read it, the book can make a pretty muddle of when and how Howl falls in love with Sophie as well.

* I feel like Heen is just a magical dog for the movie's purposes, like a witch's familiar. But I agree the peculiarity. Honestly, I always figured the page boys of Suliman were more like the Witch's blob men, except muuuuuch nicer looking.

to:

* Agreement, first time mother-hood, *especially* if you haven't been around other people's children much, if at all, and logic stands to reason Sophie has never been around any but her own *slightly* younger sisters, and two minutes with Princess Valeria. I'd also add, Howl's a child all by himself. More like five children really. Five really spoiled children, with magic, and a pretty face, and a smile that could distract you from the giant spider eating your arm.

to:

** Wales: The 'offical' Welsh are sort of northish, and the 'offical' English are sort of southish. Wales is a pretty decent mix of both. Stands to reason he *could* also be English. But he does definitely speak Welsh (book knowledge).

to:

* Various theories. But, to note, while Sophie's age doesn't vary in the book, her curse is broken the instant she puts Howl's heart back and Calcifer is free, but attention is never brought to it except that Howl asks what colour she would call her hair.

* Kingsbury and Porthaven are both part of Ingary. Both messengers are pink and yellow trimmed. Kingsbury is the actual royal city though, hence the fanciness and thoroughfare. Also note, Howl has to appear before THE king as BOTH Jenkins and Pendragon. * Side note, in the book, Howl completed a full doctorate in Wales. Book 3 he mentions that he was magical from a very young age. Nowhere is it specified when he found, either on purpose or accident, how to get to Ingary.
