The Studio Ghibli classic film, “Kiki’s Delivery Service,” was released in the United States in 1990, but its 1998 English dub from Disney was especially memorable for the star-studded cast behind the film’s endearing characters. The movie’s main character, a friendly 13-year-old witch in training, Kiki, was voiced by Kirsten Dunst. Along her path to becoming a witch, Kiki befriends a young boy named Tombo, who was voiced by Matthew Lawrence.

Lawrence brings the eager and curious Tombo to life with ease and has no problems making viewers feel fully immersed in the character. In “Kiki’s Delivery Service,” Tombo is a young boy that is highly enthusiastic about all things aviation. His interest in flying is what makes him so infatuated with Kiki once he sees her flying on her broomstick.

“Kiki’s Delivery Service” director and Studio Ghibli co-founder Hayao Miyazaki recalled in an interview that the film was the first hit title out of Studio Ghibli.” He said, “We finally had a hit movie. Every age group saw it, including small kids and seniors. I wasn’t aware of that back then. So the movie was our first box-office success.”

In a behind-the-scenes interview for “Kiki’s Delivery Service,” Lawrence spoke about his love for doing voice work on animated films. “What’s great about doing animation is that whatever happens, you can do it over and over again,” he said. Indeed, his brilliant performance as Tombo will help the beloved story of “Kiki’s Delivery Service” live on for generations.
