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.

    • That would be a dream come true for me, except they’d need my help to make it, without me they would fail ha. Maybe not, but I’d like to think they’d need me. Either way hope it happens.
