Castle in the Sky

Quote:

Castle in the Sky

, a timeless story of courage and friendship, is now more thrilling than ever with the magic of Blu-ray! The pristine hand-drawn animation fromacclaimed Academy Award®-winning director Hayao Miyazaki (2002, Best Animated Feature,

Spirited Away

) and a new digital master––featuring the original Japanese score––make this epic adventure soar like never before!

Pazu, an engineer’s apprentice, finds a young girl, Sheeta, floating down from the sky, and discovers they are both searching for a legendary floating castle, Laputa. Together, they embark on a daring quest and encounter greedy pirates, secret agents and astounding obstacles that keep them from the truth––and from each other.

For the first time ever on Blu-ray, “Castle in the Sky” is a must-own for families!
