Miazaki's First Movie! And Also, His First Classic!

  • Aug 30, 2001
Just to let people know in advance, I have not seen the new MANGA vertion of this film. However I have heard that it was a pretty chip-chop, cheesy, spoofess, dub! In other words, the new dub was a big pile of monkey doo! I will be getting the movie on DVD for the sake of getting it on DVD, however for a couple of years now I've been honored to own the Streamline Pictures dub of "The Castle of Cagliostro!"

I don't know what happened to Streamline, but my gusse is that they went out of bussness (Who knows?)! But even though they're gone, they're excellent dub stays with us (Or at least, whoever had bought the tape before it was discontinued)! The dub for Cagliostro is one fine dub! All the charicters voices are top-notch, well casted, suiting, and they are great actors too (Much like the english cast of Tenchi Muyo!)!

The cover for this movie is very good (Much better then MANGA's cover), and the quality of the film excellent to boot! The story is also well-paced! It has enough comedy, action, drama, ann more chase sceans in 100 minutes then I remember in any of the 007 movies! It's just more proof that, even though new to directing movies, Hayao Miazaki had talent! And he knew how to use it! If you can hunt down an old copy of the original Streamline dub I recomend you do so! You won't regret it!
