Kiki’s Delivery Service (1989) is a fantasy written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki, based on the book by Eiko Kadono about Kiki (Kirsten Dunst), an independent thirteen-year-old witch, who travels to a new town with her black cat, Jiji (Phil Hartman), in order to begin her training, and starts a business to support herself with the help of a baker, Osono (Tress MacNeille).

Life Lesson:

Have confidence in what you are doing, even if you don’t think you have a special skill or talent.

Movie Scene:

Kiki: “Morning, everyone!”

Osono: “Well, look who’s up! Did you sleep well?”

Kiki: “Yes. Oh, that smells good [bread]! Can I help out?”

Osono: “Sure can!”

Kiki: “Osono, I have something I want to talk to you about.” […]

Osono: “Ooh, a delivery business, huh?”

Kiki: “Well, I really only have one skill and that’s flying. So I thought a delivery service wouldn’t be a bad idea.”

Osono: “It’s a great idea — Kiki’s Flying Delivery Service. And, since you’re staying right here, I can be your very first account.”

Kiki: “You mean it! Oh, that’s great!”
