Studio Ghibli films are coming to Netflix, but not in North America or Japan


The entire Studio Ghibli filmography will find a new home on Netflix, BUT, not in the US, Canada or Japan.

Starting February 1, all 21 of the renowned Japanese animation studio’s films will premiere on the platform in much of the world.

They’ll be subtitled in 28 languages and dubbed in up to 20.The films will be released in waves: The February drop includes classics like “My Neighbor Totoro” and “Kiki’s Delivery Service.”

American fans aren’t out of the invitation forever, though. All 21 films will stream on competitor service HBO Max upon its launch in May. At the time, its acquisition marked the first time Studio Ghibli’s films were licensed to a streaming platform, the New York Times reported.

Excited? I know I am! I myself have NEVER seen any of the Ghibli Studios animated films. I will absolutely be taking advantage of the HBO Max streaming service. Will you? Let us know!
