The Studio Ghibli films were released in 3 parts, 7 Titles per month in a span of 3 months. To date, you can now stream 14 Studio Ghibli items on Netflix streaming service right now. Some of these films were released when you're still a kid so there's a chance that you already saw them somewhere in the internet but haven't got the chance to watch them in full.

We've seen the characters Spirited Away and My Neighbor Totoro in the world wide web and some wallpapers for quite some time now,  but this will be our first time to get baptized in the Studio Ghibli craze, and we're liking it so far. Better late than never!

For the first time ever, this expansive catalogue of Studio Ghibli films will be subtitled in 28 languages, and dubbed in up to 20 languages. This partnership will enable fans in Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East, Africa and Latin America to enjoy beloved classics, such as Academy Award®-winner Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, Arrietty, Kiki’s Delivery Service, My Neighbor Totoro, and The Tale of The Princess Kaguya, among others, in their native languages. 

Producer Toshio Suzuki at Studio Ghibli said, “In this day and age, there are various great ways a film can reach audiences. We’ve listened to our fans and have made the definitive decision to stream our film catalogue. We hope people around the world will discover the world of Studio Ghibli through this experience”.

We're excited to make them available in more languages across Latin America, Europe, Africa and Asia - so that more people can enjoy this whimsical and wonderful world of animation."
