Laputa: Castle in the Sky

The magic touch of master animator Hayao Miyazaki ('Spirited Away') is visible from start to finish in 'Castle in the Sky' - an imaginative tale full of mystery and adventure. The high-flying journey begins when Pazu, an engineer's apprentice, finds a young girl, Sheeta, floating down from the sky, wearing a glowing pendant. Together, they discover both are searching for the legendary floating castle, Laputa, and vow to unravel the mystery of the luminous crystal around her neck. Their quest won't be easy, however. There are air pirates, secret agents and astounding obstacles to keep them from the truth - and from each other.
