* MarketBasedTitle: The word "Laputa" was dropped from the title in the Spanish and US releases because [[UnfortunateName it means "the whore" in Spanish]]. Miyazaki took the name from ''Literature/GulliversTravels'', likely without even realizing that Jonathan Swift had chosen the name for that very reason. However, most international releases of the film kept the word anyway. It is exclusively called ''Laputa'' in Australia.

'"Castle In The Sky'' could be considered a fairy tale... one with SteamPunk, flying castles, secret princesses, and magic. The film opens with a family of SkyPirates led by the matriarch Dola attacking an airship intent on stealing a [[OrphansPlotTrinket blue crystal amulet]] from a girl named Sheeta. Sheeta, who had already been kidnapped by the evil StateSec Colonel Muska, uses the opportunity to escape and falls to what appears to be certain death until her pendant ignites and starts gently floating her back to Earth. Her descent is spotted by a young miner named Pazu, who catches her and takes her home, eager to determine if this mysterious floating girl is somehow connected with the fabled [[FloatingContinent floating castle Laputa]], which his father once saw, though [[CassandraTruth no one believed him]] or his photograph.
