Movie Info & Cast

Synopsis

One night, Pazu spies a young girl floating down from the sky, held aloft by a glowing pendant. Her name is Sheeta and she is in search of the legendary floating castle, Laputa. Pazu and Sheeta embark on a journey together to discover the castle’s location and to unravel the mystery of Sheeta’s luminous crystal. But their quest won’t be easy, as soon as they are being pursued by greedy air pirates, the military, and secret government agents, who all seek the power that Sheeta alone can control.

Metacritic

60

Its detailed fantasy world, including a dark turn-of-the-century mining town and candy-colored futuristic space bikes, is as alluring as any live-action film. Yet this two-hour story about a lost princess, a flying island and space pirates is liable to strain the patience of adults and the attention spans of children.

Viewed from a purely narrative perspective, Castle in the Sky is a fun, engaging two hours. Miyazaki knows how to keep things moving without belaboring certain scenes. He doesn’t speak down to his audience and isn’t afraid to mix in exposition with action.
