I haven't been following this very closely, since I am not a great cinema-goer,
and have never before heard of anime, let alone Miyazaki, but I thought I'd chip

I take it Castle in the Sky _doesn't_ have anything to do with Castle in the

FWIW I think Anime, if you compare other Japanese-written-in-Roman-script, is
probably three syllables, A - Ni - Me, as if it were a French word with an acute
accent on the last E (and thus the past participle of Animer, which presumably
means To Animate)

If that sounds rather confused, I'll take a chance on non-ASCII characters
getting through the mail gateways, and merely say:

I assumed it was Animé

Anyway, I can't wait to see how that comes out.  Keep us posted, all those of
you who follow these things, please!
