The Search for LaputaWhere it all began: Hayao Miyazaki’s Castle in the Sky was the first feature film produced by the legendary Studio Ghibli. All of Miyazaki's major themes - the power of flight, the bravery of young women, and a world wrecked by change - were captured with beautiful animation and joyous storytelling. In the 30 years since its Japanese release, the film has continued to break records, including almost breaking Twitter: in 2013, a record number of tweets were sent during a Japanese airing of the film, where fans tweeted the word "balse" at the same moment it was said on air.
This is the definitive examination of the art and animation of Studio Ghibli's masterpiece of fantasy and flight, Castle in the Sky! Featuring exclusive interviews, concept sketches, and finished animation cels, it's a fantastic way to journey into this fantasy land and experience the magic of Laputa once again.
