Howl’s Moving Castle was described at the 2004 Cannes film festival as being the film with the biggest “anti-war message”. Miyazaki comments that production started on Howl at the start of the Iraq war, and that it had a “great impact on them.” Nigel Andrews from the Financial Times, who met Miyazaki at the 2005 Venice film festival describes Howl’s Moving Castle as a “blend of innocence and apocalypse.”

There's reasons behind why Sophie subsequently transformed to an old woman. Sophie's sister was beautiful and friednly. In comparison, Sophie is less inferior to her sister. Therefore she has no confident in her self.
The message behind Howl's moving castle is " confidence".

Sophie's conversation with Madam Suliman in her dream who bravely revealed her own believes. She was full of confidence which was why she regained her youth. Same situation happened in Howl's seceret garden. When Sophie lost her confident, she became an old woman again.

Confidence can seem discarnated but the influences can be meaningful. A person without confidence even though if he/she is young, he/she will still have an old image.
