Laputa and Boy Who Saw the Wind both have a similar feel (even though both are not Ghibli films). The plot seems familiar in both -- Laputa being a girl with the power to uncover a city in the sky, Boy Who Saw the Wind with a boy who can ride the wind.. both have ships in the sky, and a young person being hunted after, for his/her power to be stolen and used for purposes of military power. The musical selection in both is orchestral and gives you an almost Disney-like feel to watching the movies.

These to films have a boy and a girl as main characters, one with supernatural power, that share a strong bond of friendship. In both movies thera are a lot of aircrafts and military planes involved.

Both of these films have a lot of their action occuring in the sky. Both involve young protagonists with special abilities that are hunted by a government-like organization bent on world destruction/domination. Both of these films also take place in some lovely settings.

  • 1984

One thousand years after the Giant Warriors caused an apocalyptic event known as the seven days of fire, humans are living in constant fear of the Toxic Jungle. This ever-spreading forest is filled with poisonous plants and gigantic monstrous insects; even the very air is deadly. Nausicaa is the kind and wise princess of a small, peaceful country known as the Valley of the Wind, which has so far avoided the spread of the forest. One night a large airship containing one of the Giant Warriors crashes into the valley. The following day soldiers from the powerful nation of Tolmekia invade the Valley of the Wind to reclaim and revive the warrior. As the only one who truly believes that there is a way for humans to live alongside the insects, Nausicaa must find a way to stop the war that now threatens her people and protect the Toxic Jungle before the Tolmekians burn it to the ground.

Both movies are about people fighting for their home land against the enemy that has no respect for the nature. What's more, there are many fantasy flying vehicles in these two as well as supernatural powers.

Both movies could be used as a bed-time stories, with colourful characters, interesting plot and happy ending. They are about things that only little choldren can experience and understand, magic words and pure friendships.

The Boy Who Saw The Wind and Landlock have similar story elements - in each a boy with the power of the wind is hunted after by individuals who wish to exploit his power. Both have a similaratmosphere as well, in my opinion. If you enjoyed one, you will probably like the other.

Princess Mononoke

  • Movie (1 ep x 134 min)
  • 1997

With the rise of the Iron Age in feudal Japan, man and nature grow increasingly at odds. As mankind infringes more and more into the kingdom of the beasts, many of the elder animal gods begin to succumb to their rage, cursing themselves as they lash out at rural and urban settlements alike. When a young Ashitaka, hero of his village, is imparted with one of these curses after slaying a crazed god, he forces himself into exile to prevent further harm to his village. As he ventures out into the world, however, he discovers just how dire the straights have become - with man and beast ready to break into all out war, his curse becomes the least of his problems. As both sides teeter dangerously on the side of outright slaughter of one another, Ashitaka sets his own problems aside and, using his charisma and honor, seeks to quell the hatred before it gets beyond repair - but will he be in time or is he simply delaying the inevitable?

What those two movies have in common, is the nature-concerned plot. Both of them try to show a way for humans to live in symbiosis with environment. Thera are also mighty, speaking-able animals trying to help main character to achieve his goal.
