Laputa: Castle In The Sky (天空の城ラピュタ)

from Hayao Miyazaki Web
Laputa is a known legend, as a castle that floats in the sky, nobody has really seen it, only the stories. But one man manage to take a picture of it - Pazu's father, even so, nobody believed him. And he died because of this.

After how many years passed, Pazu who is working at a young age, saw a girl floating down from the sky, towards the mine shaft where he was working. He manage to catch her, and took care of her, but the following day pirates appeared, and Sheeta - the girl who fell from the sky, knew they were after her. As they were trying to escape from the pirates the Army appeared and with a motive also to get a hold of Sheeta. It seems everybody was interested with the stone she was wearing, as it has powers that they believe came from Laputa.

I would like to know technology associated with the crystal, as to how it make things fly, but it was never revealed in this movie, or on my further research no info was found so far. But the anime story is still very good to see even if not all information is in. It is about a journey after all.
