- The tree (with the remnants of Laputa still attached) rises into low orbit by the end credits. Muska has no way to provide for himself or navigate, and there's no telling if the tree is still low enough for the air to be breathable (small animals can be remarkably hardy in this manner). If he didn't fall to his death, he's going to suffocate or starve.
- Bastard deserves it.
- He could find some stuff the soldiers left behind, build an parachute from it and simply jump.
- While blind?
- It could have been temporary.
- Actually, a Freeze-Frame Bonus during the scene in which Laputa falls into the sea reveals a man wearing a brown suit falling among the debris.
The cloaked figures in Journey fought against each other to gain absolute control of the destructive energy source they'd discovered. The Laputians destroyed parts of the earth before they learned that life and compassion, not power and destruction, are the most important things. But, as both universes learn, having ultimate power without the wisdom and compassion to understand it will just destroy and cause tragedy. In Laputa the world got off easy, as the Laputians learned their lesson before destroying everything, unlike in Journey.
- Laputa Effect in action, maybe?
