Netflix Canada to stream 21 Studio Ghibli movies

A collection of Japanese animated treasures that gives Disney a run for their money!

The wait is almost over for many movie fans, as Studio Ghibli films will finally be made available on Netflix Canada.

On Thursday, June 25, the powerhouse streaming service will add 20 titles from the Studio Ghibli catalogue to its library which includes Academy Award-winning animated films such as Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, Ponyo, Kiki’s Delivery Service, and My Neighbour Totoro.

For the unfamiliar, Studio Ghibli was founded in 1985 by Japanese animated film directors Isao Takahata and Hayao Miyazaki and is celebrated for their whimsical storytelling, spectacular direction, and distinctive visual styling which usually consists of classic hand-painted animation. 

Not only is the studio a multiple Academy Award-nominee, but co-founder Miyazaki was named one of the world’s most influential people by TIME Magazine in 2005.

These films are perfect for movie lovers of all ages. If you are new to their library of films, we recommend starting with Princess Mononoke— a true landmark in the world of animation.  It's one of Ghibli and Miyazaki's many animated masterpieces and features voice work by Claire Danes, Billy Bob Thornton, Minnie Driver, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Gillian Anderson. You can watch the trailer here

Our second pick would be Spirited Away, a masterwork, and arguably the best in a long line from Japan's premier animator. The film overtook Titanic in the Japanese box office to become the highest-grossing film in Japanese history. It is frequently ranked among the greatest animated films ever made and won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature at the 75th Academy Awards. You can watch the trailer here
