STUDIO GHIBLI FEST, a six film monthly series of anime classics, continues in August with its third title, "Castle In The Sky," from the legendary Studio Ghibli and director Hayao Miyazaki. This special event will play in movie theaters nationwide for three days only on Sunday, August 27, Monday, August 28 and Wednesday, August 30.
"Castle In The Sky" is a rollicking adventure about a young girl (Sheeta) with a mysterious crystal pendant who falls out of the sky and into the arms and life of young Pazu. Together they search for a floating island, the site of a long-dead civilization promising enormous wealth and power to those who can unlock its secrets. But greedy pirates, spies, and the army are also all in hot pursuit! As one of Studio Ghibli's earliest films, and the first to be released officially under the studio's banner, "Castle in the Sky" quickly established the studio's reputation for strong heroines, unforgettable storytelling and beautiful artwork.
The English-dubbed cast includes the vocal talents of Anna Paquin, James Van Der Beek, Cloris Leachman, Mark Hamill, Mandy Patinkin, Jim Cummings and more.
