    Now, I don't know but I've heard that Mexico should have Howl's Moving Castle in time for Christmas. Sadly, rumours say that the Netherlands might not get to see it until 2006 if realise dates don't hurry it up! I highly doubt this, but please don't hold your breaths my dears! As soon as I find out, I'll be back to tell you. If your country is not yet listed, don't worry! Howl's Moving Castle is planning to be shown in over a 100 countries, more then Spirited Away, the older sister of Howl. Last time, it took Sen a year to get to the UK, but seeing as Howl is a British story, we were one of the first in line to see it. It may take one, maybe even two years for it to get to all the countires. More countries are getting added everyday... Belgium has just been added as you can see.
