Castle in the Sky

Perhaps the best pure adventure story ever made in Japanese animation, Castle in the Sky is a tale worthy of Jules Verne. In an imaginary Europe of a century ago, Pazu is a boy inventor who dreams of following the path of his explorer father who once sighted Laputa, a floating island built by a vanished advanced civilization. When Sheeta, a mysterious girl bearing a pendant connected to Laputa, literally falls into Pazu's mining town, the children become caught up in a race against both good-natured aerial pirates and ruthless government agents to claim the secrets of the castle in the sky.
