Castle In The Sky

A stunning start for Studio Ghibli with this hand-painted masterpiece

Castle in the Sky review

Studio Ghibli’s first film refined Hayao Miyazaki’s miraculous, hand-painted visuals into a breathless quest packed with train chases, airship battles and deadly robots.

With its Star Wars-esque plot about an orphaned worker and royal refugee hunting a mythical cloud city, it’s one of Miyazaki’s most accessible adventures.

Inspired by Gulliver’s Travels and the 1984 UK Miners’ Strike, Miyazaki fashions a steampunk fantasia that looks more startling than ever on Blu-ray.
