About Laputa: Castle in the Sky from Seattle Children’s Film Festival:
From the legendary Studio Ghibli and director Hayao Miyazaki comes a rollicking adventure about a young girl with a mysterious crystal pendant who falls out of the sky and into the arms and life of young Pazu. Together they search for a floating island, the site of a long-dead civilization promising enormous wealth and power to those who can unlock its secrets. But greedy pirates, spies, and the army are also all in hot pursuit! As one of Studio Ghibli’s earliest films, and the first to be released officially under the studio’s banner, Castle in the Sky quickly established the studio’s reputation for strong heroines, unforgettable storytelling and beautiful artwork.
Run time: 125 minutes. Language: Dubbed English.
