Robot From Miyazaki’s Castle in the Sky Comes to Life


If you love Miyazaki’s animes, then you’ll love the fact that the gigantic robot from Laputa: Castle in the Sky can be seen in Tokyo, at the Ghibli Museum (FR).

Apparently, this robot is life-sized, meaning that it’s quite huge. You can take your photo right next to it. This makes me want to hop on a plane and head to Japan right now.

The movie was released in 1986 and is the first movie that Studio Ghibli released. I’ve been a fan for years. My favorite Ghibli feature by Miyazaki is Spirited Away. If you haven’t seen it, add it to your Netflix queue now.

    I think kikis delivery service was actually my favorite but I think its really really cool they made that statue

    That sculpture isn’t the robot shown below it. The sculpture is a rendition of the military robot. And then the picture below would have a lot more fire in it, and it just wouldn’t have the same happy tone.
    And to be completely accurate, it needs to be missing a hand. And a foot.

    M needs some friends.

    Still waiting for them to make a life-sized Howl’s Moving Castle.
