“Castle in the Sky” is one of the minor efforts of Japanese animation master Hayao Miyazaki. And, by calling it a minor effort of his, I mean it’s really very good. Like many of his cartoons (to use a term that seems crude in this context), “Castle in the Sky” combines high adventure with a story that has something to say about the environment.
