Howl's Moving Castle is Miyazaki's worst movie, but it's not bad.
Well it's the first one I can take my daughter to in the theatre. I'd rather some of the others but they're so hard or expensive to get, this is a good option.

Definitely take them to see Kiki as well.. that's one of my favorites from Miyazaki and super underrated in my opinion
Also.. maybe better for when they're a bit older but don't forget Takahata!

I know this is a Miyazaki thread, and it's definitively worth watching them, but if I may I would also suggest looking into Mamoru Hosoda's movies, three of them have recently been added to Netflix, but specially the one that came out recently Mirai I think is great for kids, he's personally my favorite japanese director and all of his is great.

@bard91 Not to get too far off track, but I think Summer Wars is my favorite.

@tokyoslim I really need to watch that one of these days. All I know about it is that it's basically Our War Game without the Digimon, and I love Our War Game, so it sounds up my alley.

without the Digimon
Kind of.... ezaPJ
Thanks everyone! I've had such a great experience with my daughter. We went and saw Howl's Moving Castle in the theatre for Ghiblifest. She and I both loved it.
Then we were able to get the Secret World of Arrietty from the library to watch at home. Good, not as good as Howl but good to watch with my younger son as well.
EZA is a fantastic community and I can't thank you enough for your recommendations!
PS next step is getting her to get off the Dubs and onto Subs!
My Neighbor Totoro tonight. It was...weird. Kids liked it. Kiki is next on the list!
Thankfully library has a bunch of these movies but they're the Disney versions. Oh well, good enough for noobs.
