24 Day Studio Ghibli Challenge

Day Two

Day Three - a couple - Sheeta and Pazu - Castle in the Sky

This is not one of Studio Ghibli's more popular films, but I really enjoyed the interaction between these two. As with so many of Miyazaki 's films, there is a strong female character and an equally strong male character, both you, both orphans, both determined to do the right thing. For Pazu, it's to prove that Laputa, a mystical city in the clouds, exists. For Sheeta, it is to avoid capture by the evil Col. Muska (played wonderfully by Mark Hamill). Throw in some well meaning, but dangerous pirates, a benevolent robot and a cautionary tale of respecting nature and it's a great little film. I love watching these two young people sort of find their way together and falling in love without meaning to.
