GKIDS and Fathom Events have announced that Studio Ghibli Fest will continue this month with the U.S. theatrical release of Hayao Miyazaki’s 1986 anime classic Castle in the Sky, which will screen on Sunday, August 27th (English dub) and Monday, August 28th (English subtitles).
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.
