|That was amazing... such a cute and enjoyable movie. it has that Alice in Wonderland sort of vibe but much more japanese.. |
I really liked that scene near the end where the birds all came together to form a staircase to save Haru from falling. also I thought Haru was the cutest as a cat.
The top hat cat, Baron, who helped Haru, was based off the cat statue from Whisper of the Heart, and this story was based off the story written by the main character in that movie. Baron talked about how all the creations that people worked really hard on end up coming to life in his world... the theme of Whisper of the Heart was working really hard on things.
This page has a lot of cool info about the connections between this movie and Whisper of the Heart... http://theentertainmentnut.wordpress.com/2013/06/02/an-animated-dissection-connecting-the-cat-returns-to-whisper-of-the-heart/
