Studio Ghibli Films Come to Netflix, But Not in the US

For a change, here is something your VPN service won’t be able to provide here in Puerto Vallarta! Netflix has just announced they acquired the rights to stream the famed Studio Ghibli animation films in many countries throughout the world, but not the US.

Anime fans around the world have come to love the wonderful films created by acclaimed Japanese director Hayao Miyazaki, such as Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke and My Neighbor Totoro. The Ghibli catalog includes other classics, such as Ponyo On The Cliff By The Sea and Howl’s Moving Castle. It’s worth noting that six of Studio Ghibli’s films are among the 10 highest-grossing anime films made in Japan, and five of their films have received Academy Award nominations.

Here’s the English trailer for Spirited Away:

Starting on February, Netflix will begin offering 21 films from the legendary animation house, but not in the US, as HBO has already acquired streaming rights, and the films will only be available through HBO Max beginning in May.
