KiKi's Delivery Service is an animated movie by the director of such popular films as Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke. Unlike these more recent films, however, KiKi is a perfect family movie that contains no violent or overly frightening content and can be enjoyed by any age.
The story is a simple one of a little witch leaving home (at a surprisingly early age!) to establish her own life and independence. There is no climactic battle of good vs evil; instead it is a cheerful story about growing up.
The dvd contains both English an dub and the original Japanese language track. The dub is quite good and full of celebrity voices; much like a large budget Disney film, parents will not find themselves wincing at Saturday morning cartoon level voicework. This is a very cute and easily overlooked movie that quickly became a favorite in my family.
