Fanfics and Literature
What is Laputa, and why did people abandon it?Laputa: High-tech airborne construct, the titular “Castle in the Sky”.  Carries sentient robots, ecosystems, cultural artifacts, magnetic weather-control systems, weapons, and computers to pilot the castle and/or host human knowledge.  Magnetic “Volucite” crystals may also be computers, giving spell-like commands to other tech.Most likely purpose: Library to preserve species, info, and artifacts.  Volucite core may signal for miles if not light years. Reaching it requires at least 2 technologies: high-flying aircraft and a magnetic compass.  In addition only a Laputan descendant with a Volucite amulet can control the Castle. It seems the makers chose to withhold Laputa to prevent misuse.Rejected reasons:Residence: Floating and hiding it with a nuclear-level energy weapon seems overprotective of the few dozen humans it could host if only it had enough agriculture and manufacturing.  The castle’s outside would also have a huge fall hazard.Military Base: A large tree would tax resources and reduce stealth.  Also there is no reason to store valuables that could attract thieves.Reason to leave: Passing on a legend, Sheeta claims Laputans voluntarily left their high-tech world to regain vital rooting to the Earth.  Almost no one with a history lesson would choose a shorter life with less tech and more disease. Her statement suggests a resource shortage.  This doesn't explain why they wouldn't take some of that efficient tech to the ground with them instead of starving on their bare hands. Perhaps a Laputan leader sold a historically ignorant public on “rooting back to the Earth” to withhold technology, then vanished from our view.Another theory is that most of humanity fled disaster, leaving the planet and/or uploading to Volucite substrate where they still form a high-tech civilization.  Before they left, these people left an archive for the future. Unless moving was mandatory some would cling to their old lives perhaps regressing to an early Industrial state.

Studio Ghibli is an animation studio based in Japan. It was set up by animator Hayao Miyazaki and film maker Isao Takahata in 1985 for 'Tenkyuu no Shiro Rapyuta' (Laputa: Castle in the Sky). However the studio had earlier beginnings with 'Kaze no Tani no Naushika' (Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind) in 1983, which was based on a manga by Miyazaki.

The studio has consistently produced high quality films and is one of the leading animation studios in the world. [CLICK TO SEE FILM LIST]

Totoro hails from the movie 'Tonari no Totoro' (My Neighbour Totoro). It is a forest spirit and was adopted as mascot after the movie was critically acclaimed and merchandise of its lead character helped earn the studio financial stability in its early days. There are in fact 3 Totoros: Oh-Totoro (Large Totoro), Chuu-Totoro (Medium Totoro) and Chibi-Totoro (Small Totoro). However when we say 'Totoro' we usually refer to Oh-Totoro. 'Totoro' is mispronounciation of the word 'troll' by the 4-year old protagonist in the film.
