Kiki's Delivery Service, the first Studio Ghibli movie localized by Disney back in 1997, was Hayao Miyazaki's fourth movie for the studio and follows on his tradition set by My Neighbor Totoro for imaginative children's movies full of magic and wonder. This movie has been rereleased with My Neighbor Totoro and Castle in the Sky in conjunction with the home release of Ponyo on the Sea. While I am a fan of all of Miyazaki's work, I am especially high on his children's movies, and Kiki's Delivery Service is no exception.
Kiki is a young witch-in-training who is facing a serious time in her life. Like all 13 year old witches, she is expected to leave home and train on her own for a year in order to cultivate the skills that come naturally to her. At first she is excited to be going, but she quickly learns that life on one's own can be tough if unprepared.
