I had never seen this film on the big screen before, and never realized how charming its humor is and how incredibly dynamic its animation is. It's still hard to believe animators could capture an airplane so incredibly well by hand! I have no idea if Studio Ghibli actually referenced it, but this film really reinded me of Tintin in its setting and color palette. I could see it again and again, and I can't wait for the sequel!

Any and all Studio Ghibli films are worth seeing - especially those of Hayao Miyazaki.
