Laputa: Castle in the Sky

1986

Miyazaki’s first Studio Ghibli film. Laputa: Castle in the Sky is set in a steampunk version of 19th century England and follows the adventures of Pazu, a young boy from a mining village.

I wanted to make an adventure story with the kind of boy hero who starts out fighting and has a lot of dreams. And I was able to confirm that people don’t come to see that kind of film! After time, a lot of people started saying, “I love Laputa,” but at the theatrical release it didn’t attract much of an audience.
