Saw this at the Toronto International Film Festival 2 weeks ago with the english voice acting. Probably the best American overdub for an animation that I've ever heard.. really top notch voice acting all around. And I'm glad they went with more unknown voice actors, I always find it a bit distracting when they go for big-name actors for animated movies (Shrek is an exception because of the caricature of the voices).

Hayao Miyazaki was there in person to present the film and do a Q&A after. When asked what his inspiration and motivation for the film was, he replied "I've always wanted to make a movie about a bath-house" :)

Ugh, while I'm looking forward to this release, it's still hard to top some of his earlier work like "Castle of Cagliostro", "Laputa" and "Porco Rosso." His newer films are less slap-stick comedy and more spiritual and dramatic. Guess it's artistic maturity. I for one am glad that he's getting the worldwide recognition that he deserves.
