"Flawless…the film which truly catapulted Miyazaki to the forefront of world animation."—Bill Gibron,

Tenku no shiro Laputa). Perhaps the best pure adventure story ever made in Japanese animation, Castle in the Sky is a tale worthy of Jules Verne. In an imaginary Europe of a century ago, Pazu is a boy inventor who dreams of following the path of his explorer father who once sighted Laputa, a floating island built by a vanished advanced civilization. When Sheeta, a mysterious girl bearing a pendant connected to Laputa, literally falls into Pazu’s mining town, the children become caught up in a race against both good-natured aerial pirates and ruthless government agents to claim the secrets of the castle in the sky.

—Carl Horn
