Recommend Hayao Miyazaki Films - Kiki's Delivery Service and Castle in the Sky

It is rare to find these movies rereleased in the theaters but if you like Japanese anime films and are looking for wonderful, delightful and entertaining non -Disney movies to take your kids to, I enthusiastically recommend both movies. 

Here is a quick synopsis of both movies. 
Castle in the Sky - A young boy stumbles into a mysterious girl who floats down from the sky. The girl, Sheet, was chased by pirates, army and government secret agents. In saving her life, they begin a high flying adventure that goes through all sorts of flying machine, eventually searching for Sheet's identity in a floating castle of a lost civilization. Recommended for ages 8+.

Kiki's Delivery Service - Kiki is a  13 year old witch-in-training. According to tradition, all witches of that age must leave home for one year, so that they can learn how to live on their own. She goes to live in another town with her talking cat Gigi. After starting her own delivery service (using her broom as the delivery vehicle). Recommend for all ages.
