CASTLE IN THE SKY's timeless story of courage and friendship is now more thrilling than ever with the magic of Blu-ray! The pristine hand-drawn animation from acclaimed Academy Award(R)-winning director Hayao Miyazaki (2002, Best Animated Feature, SPIRITED AWAY) and a new digital master -- featuring the original Japanese score -- make this epic adventure soar like never before! Pazu, an engineer's apprentice, finds a young girl, Sheeta, floating down from the sky, and discovers they are both searching for a legendary floating castle, Laputa. Together, they embark on a daring quest and encounter greedy pirates, secret agents and astounding obstacles that keep them from the truth -- and from each other. For the first time ever on Blu-ray, CASTLE IN THE SKY is a must-own for families!
Inspired by "Gulliver's Travels," the fantasy-adventure Castle in the Sky (1986) was Hayao Miyazaki's third feature, and helped to establish his reputation as a visionary in both Japan and America. The orphan Sheeta inherited a mysterious crystal that links her to the legendary sky-kingdom of Laputa. With the help of resourceful Pazu and a rollicking band of sky pirates, she makes her way to the ruins of the once-great civilization. Sheeta and Pazu must outwit the evil Muska, who plans to use Laputa's science to make himself ruler of the world. Castle echoes elements in Myazaki's earlier Nausicaä, and anticipates imagery in his later films, from My Neighbor Totoro to Spirited Away. The exciting flying sequences, appealing characters, and fantastic vision of a steam-powered future Jules Verne might have imagined make Castle in the Sky a must-have for fans of Japanese and Western animation.

I like all the Studio Ghibli films I've seen so far - beautiful animation and camera work and lovely stories. My favourite so far is still "My Neihbour Totoro."Published 11 months ago by Regine Haensel
My only issue is that there isn't the original audio. By this I mean that this version doesn't have the original score, and in fact doesn't really have any. Read morePublished 13 months ago by joy
