GKIDS and Fathom Events’ ‘Studio Ghibli Fest 2018’ Comes to a Close With Star-Studded ‘Castle in the Sky’ in November
Throughout 2018, GKIDS and Fathom Events continued their collaboration to bring a new line-up of treasured animated features to U.S. cinemas. STUDIO GHIBLI FEST 2018 gave fans an opportunity to see nine of Studio Ghibli’s celebrated animated masterpieces on cinema screens nationwide, along with some very special surprises.
The final feature for Studio Ghibli Fest 2018 is “Castle in the Sky.” With stunning animation from acclaimed Academy Award®-winning director Hayao Miyazaki and a star-studded English-dubbed cast including the vocal talents of Anna Paquin, James Van Der Beek, Cloris Leachman, Mark Hamill, Mandy Patinkin, and more, the stunningly animated “Castle in the Sky” is a timeless story of courage and friendship.
The high-flying adventure of “Castle in the Sky” begins when Pazu, an engineer’s apprentice, spies a young girl, Sheeta, floating down from the sky, held aloft by a glowing pendant. Both Sheeta and Pazu are searching for the legendary floating castle, Laputa, and they vow to travel there together to unravel the mystery of the luminous crystal. But their quest won’t be easy, as soon they are being pursued by greedy air pirates, the military, and secret government agents, who all seek the power Sheeta alone can control.
