The answer to part A was that it was initially slated to be released without a Japanese language track. And this had many in the fan community up in arms so to speak. Miramax made a good decision to listen.
In part B, I was looking for the fact that all of Miyazaki's domestic releases are usually voiced by A list American actors as opposed to the common voice actors used for the purpose of dubbing in English. And it should be noted that even the English language dialogue is more of an accurate translation of the original Japanese script as opposed to other anime releases. There are less liberties taken with the English script and Miyazaki has been known to sit in on the English dubbing process so even the tone of the dub matches that of the original Japanese counterpart.
Your answer about Disney as a major source of support and advertisement was good as well. Again, thank you for taking time out to answer the challenge.
