Trivia

The name of Laputa was borrowed from the classical English satire "Gulliver's Travels" (pub. 1729) by Jonathan Swift.
The robots in the film are inspired by the ones featured in the Fleischer version of Superman.
It is thought by some that the setting of Castle in the Sky is possibly the same setting as another of Miyazaki's movies, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, but in an earlier period of history.
Laputa was inspired by Paronella Park, a castle built by Jose Paronella at Mena Creek, in Far North Queensland, Australia. The theme music from Tenku no shiro Rapyuta is used during the night tours of the castle.
The weaponry and mechanical settings in Laputa is a mixture of British and German designs. Miyazaki is a fan of German weaponry, so soldier's uniform, medals, and granades are modeled after German design, not to mention the gigantic battle zeppelin Goliath.
