Overview
Hayao Miyazaki followed the success of his "Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind" with another astounding animated masterpiece whose story takes its cue from Laputa, the floating island-city described in Jonathan Swift's "Gulliver's Travels." The epic fantasy adventure revolves around Pazu, an orphaned boy and a girl named Sheeta who fell from the sky into the arms of Pazu. While fleeing from air-pirates, their adventures involve finding out about Sheeta's identity and the secret of her pendant made of a levitation stone crystal. The film has a wonderful retro-futuristic tone that also evokes Jules Verne's books, and delivers a subtle anti-war and ecological message in a typically Miyazaki non-preachy manner. Studio Ghibli was founded around the production of this film, which makes this film the de facto first official Ghibli feature. With loads of extras, including Hayao Miyzaki's storyboard (expected animated), and much more!
