In the Streamline dub, Jodo is portrayed throughout the film by Jeff Winkless, but in the climax, he is voiced by Kerrigan Mahan. This is due to the localization team believing that these were two separate characters (Mahan's portrayal is credited to "Goemon's Final Opponent" on the cast sheet"). See more »

Top quality film debut from the now world renowned Hayao Miyazaki. the Castle of Cagliostro is great family entertainment, full of fun & action for the whole family (something Miyazaki has proven to be a master of during the past couple of decades). The animation is of a good standard, though it does show it's age & the more recent Manga English language dub is of high quality. A film for all anime & non anime fans alike 8/10.
