Alex here. The new episode of the GSSFT Podcast can be downloaded here. This time my special guest David Stark and I discuss the first film to come out of what would become Studio Ghibli – Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind.
On a very special podcast, David Stark and I discuss what is, to my knowledge, Lauren Bacall‘s only venture into SF and Fantasy film – the Hayao Miyazaki’s 2004 animated film Howl’s Moving Castle, and its English Dub, featuring Lauren Bacall as The Witch of the Waste. Download the podcast here.
Note: One point I forgot to mention on the podcast – the film was originally slated to be directed by Mamoru Hosoda, who has directed two SF films which we’ll be discussing later on the GSSFT Podcasts – Summer Wars, and The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, before Hosada was removed from the project and Miyazaki took over.
