Miyazaki's Airship

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Studio Ghibli, the legendary Japanese animation studio, an awesome retrospective has been set up in Tokyo’s Roppongi Hills. The centerpiece of the Studio Ghibli Expo is this massive illuminated replica of the giant airship from Hayao Miyazaki’s 1986 feature-length anime Castle in the Sky.

The airship measures about 8 feet tall and nearly 20 feet long, features dozens of spinning propellers, and gently moves up and down, which makes it appear as though it’s actually floating in the center of the room. It’s surrounded by suspended planes, airships, and other flying machines from Studio Ghibli productions.

Watch this video to get a better look at the giant airship in motion.
