Land of Laputa

Castle in the Sky is a grand anime adventure with a multi-layered premise. Which is why it’s one of Hayao Miyazaki’s longer movies. Most anime movies that I’ve seen have complex premises. It’s something you eventually get used to. Castle in the Sky is about a lost princess, a magical world called Laputa, pirates, and ancient robots. If you follow Studio Ghibli movies like I do, you’d know that this movie is the first. Characters are still blurred, but there’s actually a straight forward villain. Even in the 80’s the animation is grand and richly detailed. So if you’re ready for a denser anime movie, Castle in the Sky is a good choice to start with.
