The men in the film are "in love" with Sheeta, and she's only a girl of thirteen years old. This is made for laughs.

A few very mild innuendos, nothing bad.


Some scenes of mildly intense action pepper the film. Explosions are frequently shown during these moments.

Pazu and Sheeta are frequently shown in considerable danger.

Many guns are fired throughout the duration of the film. One bullet fired near the end of the film grazes Pazu's cheek, followed by a brief spurt of blood.

Muska's death involves his eyes being permanently blinded, followed by him falling alongside the entire island of Laputa.


Very mild lenguage like "idiot" or "stupid".

The word "Laputa" is taken from the novel Gulliver's Travels, and is based on the Spanish phrase meaning "the whore". However, the implication of the word in this film is unintentional, as writer and director Hayao Miyazaki had no idea about the true meaning of the word "Laputa" before putting it in the film.


The scenes towards the end with Muska can be quite intense.

Most of the action scenes are relatively intense.

Colonel Muska might scare younger viewers.
