Plot

Kiki is a 13 year-old witch in training. By tradition, it is time for Kiki to leave her home to spend a year alone in a new town to establish herself as a full witch. Kiki sets herself on her mother's broom with her closest companion, Jiji, a loquacious black cat. She flies off to a new life, but unfortunately has not inherited her mother's skills as a healer, nor developed any other magic skills, with the exception of flying -- and she is notoriously unskilled even at that. At her departure from home, she has trouble controlling her newly-inherited broom, and ricochets from the trees in her front yard. Wind bells in the trees chime, and one of the neighbors wistfully comments that he will miss the sound of the bells. This article is part of the Witchcraft series. ... The black cat in a fighting stance is a historically important anarchist symbol. ...


Kiki settles in the beautiful seaside island city of Korico, and after initially finding it difficult to adjust to the pace of life, starts a delivery service that takes advantage of her ability to fly. Kiki experiences several setbacks such as slow business, misplaced merchandise, rude customers and illness. She also has to deal with her loneliness, worries, and homesickness.


Having caught the eye of a local boy about her age, who has an interest in aviation and in Kiki herself, she at first rebuffs, then befriends him, and they begin to develop a normal boy-girl relationship.


As such relationships will do, this one becomes so important that it begins to affect her work, and in fact, she even loses her magic. Kiki learns about overcoming such obstacles with the help of a newfound friend, a young artist who gives some good advice about the kind of inspiration she needs to regain her magic.


Then comes a moment of deadly crisis, when the boy who is so important to her is accidentally lifted into the air in a dirigible accident. When she is his only hope of rescue, she finds the inspiration to regain her flying ability - thanks largely to her independence, self-reliance, and with encouragement and help from others. Dirigible can refer to : an airship -- a lighter-than-air aircraft that can be steered and propelled through the air. ...


Suddenly famous, she sends home a simple, modest letter to her parents, saying that she is becoming used to her new home, and that things are working out well for her.


The story continues through the end titles, as she flies a high-guard formation with her friend as he flies his human-powered aircraft in a flight sequence obviously inspired by the Gossamer Albatross. Later, she is on the street of her town and notices a little girl walking past, because the little girl has her hair and clothing styled like Kiki's and is even carrying a small broom. Three human powered vehicles: the Gossamer Albatross II and two bicycles. ... The Gossamer Albatross was a human-powered aircraft built by Dr. Paul B. MacCready. ...

Differences Between the English and Japanese Versions

Although the plot and much of the script was left intact, Disney's English dub of Kiki's Delivery Service contains some changes. Phil Hartman's nasal, sarcastic-sounding Jiji differed significantly from the cute performance of the original Japanese voice actress. There were also occasional additions and embellishments to the musical score overlaying some of the previously silent sequences. Most of the extra pieces of music (provided by Paul Chihara) ranged from soft piano music to a string-plucked reindition of Edvard Grieg's In the Hall of the Mountain King. In addition, the replacement of the original opening and ending theme songs. The new songs, "Soaring" and "I'm Gonna Fly" were written and performed by Sydney Forest. All changes were approved by Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli.

Trivia

  • "Kiki" is the nickname of actress Kirsten Dunst, who voiced the character in the 1998 English dub. The English dub was also Phil Hartman's last voice-acting performance before he was murdered.
  • This was the first release under the Disney/Studio Ghibli deal; the dub was recorded in 1997, and released directly to video on September 1, 1998. The video release proved popular, selling over a million copies. A few weeks later, Disney released a subtitled VHS of the movie, complete with the original Japanese soundtrack and subtitles. The region 1 DVD was released on April 15, 2003, alongside Spirited Away and Castle in the Sky.
  • The word takkyūbin (宅急便, literally home-fast-mail) in the Japanese title is a trademark of Yamato Un'yu Kabushikigaisha (ヤマト運輸株式会社, Yamato Transport), though is used today as the synonym for takuhaibin (宅配便, literally home-delivery-mail). The company not only permited the use of the trademark, but also sponsored the film.
  • The crows featured in this movie seem to be collared crows (Corvus torquatus), which live in China.
  • In Spain Kiki was re-christened "Nicky", and the film re-titled "Nicky la aprendiz de bruja" (Nicky the Apprentice Witch), due to the fact that the word kiki is Spanish slang for sexual intercourse. The Latin American title "Kiki - repartos a domicilio" would obviously have given rise to a rather unfortunate double entendre and so the protagonist's name was changed.
