Kiki’s Delivery Service
Last night while flicking through the channels, I decided to see what movies were going to be on my favourite movie channel, FilmFour. Since it was after midnight I was able to check all of today’s movies. That’s when I saw it, Kiki’s delivery service, also known as Kiki’s flying delivery service. I’m beginning to think that I’m the one that put flying in the title, because I was convinced that was the name but no one else calls it that.
When I was a kid I loved that movie, so naturally I wanted to force it on my nephew. He’s at the stage where he likes shows that talk directly to the audiences, so I didn’t make him watch it yet, I’ll wait till he gets older. I end up not even watching it myself, but I still looked it up. I have a weird brain that’s obsessed with finding out movie trivia.
Here are the results of my search. There are some differences in the dubbed version, which I watch, and the original, that’s not uncommon. That strange thing is that the subtitled version is wrong. I think the problem is that it is a written version of the English dub, which isn’t entirely identical to the Japanese version. Another thing I found out that I didn’t know was that it is loosely based on a book of the same name.
The biggest thing I read was that there is a live action remake in the works. Whether or not it goes ahead is another thing. It seems the rumours have been around for a while, but IMDB have the release date set for 2011 so it may happen and I hope it does.
If you had your way what anime would you have turned into a live action movie. Maybe you’re completely against the idea of anime becoming live action, if so don’t be afraid to leave a comment about why you feel that way.
