Castle In The Sky

Not bad. It’s not as good as Howl’s Moving Castle, but still not bad.

One of my favorites!

One of my favorite Studio Ghibli movies! Right up at the top with My Neighbor Totoro, Grave of the Fireflies, Kiki's Delivery Service, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, and Ponyo!

Awesome Movie!!

Loved it, not my favorite Studio Ghibli movie, but it still is very awesome!!! I was glad to pirates weren't that bad!! :)


I love all of Miyazaki's movies the characters draw you in. Ponyo was the first movie of his we saw. My neighbor Totoro is also a favorite


This is my all time favorite Studio Ghibli film. Exciting, sweet, and funny. It's an eco friendly kind of movie, but not in your face. The two main characters are smart and awesome but not perfect. I think it's really nice that Sheeta (the girl) doesn't rely completely on Pazu (the boy). She's able to fight evil guys, but she still needs him. It's a nice balance. Highly recommend it.

Not "Totoro"

Enjoyable, but probably better for older kids.


Just ok.

Castle in the Sky

The animation was great but I got a little confused in parts.


Great movie - highly recommended!



not great

i did not like it that much it was weird


Loved it!!!!!!!

A Favorite!

Castle In The Sky is definitely one of my top favorite Hayao Miyazaki films!
It's full of adventure, magic, mystery, and guts. The main characters Pazu and Sheeta and both the hero and heroine in this wonderful story.
It teaches us about human greed and power, and also dreams and friendships.
Not to mention, the soundtrack is absolutely gorgeous, especially the main theme. I suggest playing it on the piano!
Also, the Grandma pirate is pretty awesome.


A fantastical parody of the California Gold Rush and how ultimately, even after stripping the Earth bare, the only thing greed leads us to is tragedy and scorched Earth. However, being a children's film, this is cloaked under a charming story of young children's dreams and has a very happy ending.
