Your favourite Studio Ghibli films are coming to Netflix in 2020

Try Not To Freak Out But All 21 Of The Studio Ghibli Films Are Coming To Netflix

We've got good news and bad news for you, Studio Ghibli fans, and that's largely going to depend on where you live. "We've listened to our fans and have made the definitive decision to stream our film catalogue".

Variety broke the news that Netflix has won the global Studio Ghibli streaming rights, officially putting an end to the studio's long-held policy that it would not release its beloved animated films for streaming.

Despite the films' global popularity, it appears they will decidedly not be available to North American or Japanese markets, as echoed by a statement from Netflix's director of original animation Aram Yacoubian.

Upcoming streaming service HBO Max, which is set to launch in the USA in May, has acquired streaming rights for Studio Ghibli films in North America. They'll be subtitled in 28 languages and dubbed in up to 20.

Elsewhere, HBO Max recently picked up US streaming rights to Studio Ghibli's famed work, meaning that Princess Mononoke, My Neighbor Totoro, Academy Award-winning Spirited Away, and many more will be available on WarnerMedia's new streaming service when it launches in Spring 2020.

China outbreak: Over 130 new cases of deadly virus
The virus causing the current outbreak is different from those previously identified, Chinese scientists said earlier this month. It said that close monitoring was needed given that the source, transmission and mutation methods of virus were unknown.

The first batch is set to roll out on February 1 and will include several classics such as My Neighbor Totoro, whose character became Ghibli's mascot, and the studio's first production Castle in The Sky.

Studio Ghibli has been notoriously resistant to streaming - until three months ago, when HBO Max scooped up the US streaming rights to all of the classic anime films from Hayao Miyazaki, Isao Takahata, and more. But worldwide, Ghibli's infamously hard-to-see films will be more readily available than ever.

On March 1, the service will add Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (1984), Princess Mononoke (1997), My Neighbours the Yamadas (1999), Spirited Away (2001), The Cat Returns (2002), Arrietty (2010), and The Tale of The Princess Kaguya (2013). Then from April 1 we'll have From Up On Poppy Hill, When Marnie Was There, Ponyo, Pom Poko, Whisper of the Heart, and Howl's Moving Castle.

Studio Ghibli was launched in 1985 by Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata, and went on to become globally popular for its epic anime tales of fantasy, adventure and drama, usually centered around young protagonists, and often carrying important subtexts.
