Format: DVD
Is it just me, or do those very words, without even knowing what they refer to, contain a whimsical, imagination-inspiring power to them?
"Castle in the Sky" is by Japanese filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki, who I've come to believe is one of the most masterful storytellers alive today, and maybe of all time. It begins with a young girl, Sheeta, drifting down from the sky into the arms of a young miner named Pazu. From there begins an incredible adventure as these two search for answers to the girl's origins while running from both air pirates as well as mysterious agents. I don't intend to reveal much of the plot here, but suffice it to say, this movie reignited the feelings I used to have as a child when watching such classics as "The Wizard of Oz" and the "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" (which I also just recently purchased on DVD.
The movie was created several years ago, but was recently brought to America, with a wonderful redubbing into English, thanks to Disney Studios. If you're looking for visuals like the mind-blowing, computer simulations in recent Disney hits such as "Finding Nemo", this isn't it. However, if you're a fan of traditional cel animation, this film may be one of the best ever produced. Miyazaki's attention to detail, his ability to bring these two dimensional characters to life, is awe-inspiring.
For me, the greatest thing about this movie is that it's reminded me of the kind of fictional magic I hope to create myself one day, and makes me wonder if it's too late in my life for me to become an animator. The bad thing about seeing a movie like this, is that I know that I could never produce anything nearly as beautiful.
Fortunately for me, if I ever get the opportunity, I'm just stubborn, determined, and delusional enough to give it a shot anyway.

This movie was one of my favorites. It looked great, especially for a movie done in 1986. The extras weren't that exciting, but who would buy a DVD just for the extars? It's the movie that really counts, and it's here that Castle in the Sky really shines. I especially liked watching it in Japanese (Pazu sounds really funny). Definately worth every penny.

A beautifully told story of friendship and trust. Fantastic animation, voice characterization and music. Great escape into a world full of magical and humorous occurrences.

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
This is the newest edition of one of the most classic of all Studio Ghibli films. Disney first issued it back in 2003 as a dvd set, then re-issued it in 2010 as another dvd set with a changed English sound track that more closely resembled the music on the Japanese track. Normally this is a good thing but in the case of Castle in the Sky; the Disney folk had done such a wonderful job of enhancing the sound track that many Otaku consider it better than the 2010 redo. However, if you haven't heard the original, you'll be quite happy with the 2010 redo since the 2003 English track was never offered as an extra.

This BD/combo pack is the third edition of this classic and basically duplicates the 2010 dvd set while upping the ante to a high definition video and audio bluray. Once again, the English 2003 track is not offered as an extra. All further comments are for the bluray.

Video is enhanced to a true 1080p, 1.85:1 aspect ratio. Castle has never looked better. The colours shine and like all Ghibli films, the detail is amazing. It really looks impressive for a film that was made back in 1986.

The English dub has also been enhanced from the dvd's Dolby Digital 5.1 track. My BD player shows it as a DTS-HD 5.1 Master audio. Strangely my Denon receiver shows it as a DTS-HD 6.1 master audio. Either way, it's very impressive. The japanese sub gets slightly boosted from DD stereo to DTS-HD 2.0 and the french track remains the same with DD stereo.

I won't go into great details on the plot as you can read any of the other reviews for that. Instead note that it's the typical boy meets girl who's being chased by villains and lots of action follows. And being a Hayao Miyazaki movie it's one of the best examples of the genre.

Format: DVD
After some investigating (and an erroneous online review) I was stupidly given to believe that this re-release had been properly English subtitled with corrected Japanese translations (for those interested in watching the film in it's original language) but alas, after forking over the additional funds for this, my third version of this film on DVD (having previously purchased a rather nice "Studio Ghibli" collection DVD box set as an Asian import (with truer subtitles but with a lot of, "Engrish" translations and miss-synced or flash past text) and the previous Disney release) I was ticked to discover that the subtitles where still dubtitles (it is very evident from the beginning of the film as the pirates keep referring to their leader (an old cantankerous woman) as "Mama", but the word never appears in either the subtitles or English audio dub).

So if you where hopping (like me) that this re-release would have fixed this issue, then prepared to be disappointed :(

BTW: the three star ratting is due to the lack of proper subtitles, as the film itself is worth 5+ stars.
