Studio Ghibli is a Japanese animation film studio known for producing several highly popular anime films such as “Howl’s Moving Castle,” “Grave of the Fireflies,” “Spirited Away,” and “Kiki’s Delivery Service.” But international fans often face the problem of where to stream these films because, until recently, streaming service is only available in selected areas such as Japan, the US, and Canada.

But that won’t be a problem any more thanks to a recent partnership between Studio Ghibli and streaming giant Netflix. The studio’s roster of animated films will soon be available for international subscribers of the US-based streaming service, according to ComicBook.

“From February 2020, 21 films from the legendary animation house Studio Ghibli are coming exclusively to Netflix,” the company posted on its Netflix ANZ Twitter account. “We’re proud to bring beloved, influential stories like Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle and My Neighbour Totoro to first-time viewers and high-flying fans alike.”

The Studio Ghibli films will be released in three batches. Netflix will be released seven animated films on February 1, 2020, which include “Castle in the Sky” (1986), “My Neighbor Totoro” (1988), “Kiki’s Delivery Service” (1989), “Only Yesterday” (1991), “Porco Rosso” (1992), “Ocean Waves” (1993), and “Tales from Earthsea” (2006).

Another batch, which consists of seven films, will be released on March 1, 2020. The movies are “Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind” (1984), “Princess Mononoke” (1997), “My Neighbors the Yamadas” (1999), “Spirited Away” (2001), “The Cat Returns” (2002), “Arrietty” (2010), and “The Tale of The Princess Kaguya” (2013).

The last batch will be available on Netflix starting April 1, 2020. The seven films that comprise the last batch are “Pom Poko” (1994), “Whisper of the Heart” (1995), “Howl's Moving Castle” (2004), “Ponyo” (2008), “From Up on Poppy Hill” (2011), “The Wind Rises” (2013), and “When Marnie Was There” (2014).

But Studio Ghibli fans living in the U.S. and Canada were not too happy with the last part of Netflix’s message. “For our international mates in the mentions...the films will be available on Netflix ANZ and globally (excluding the US, Canada, and Japan),” the company said.
