The story of a young witch, who uses her flying broom to start a delivery business, Hayao Miyazaki directed an animated adaptation of the story in 1989 – It is based on the 1985 novel of the same name by Eiko Kadono. Disney released an English language version in 1998. The look of the new live-action film is heavily influenced by Miyazaki’s designs and storytelling.
