Studio Ghibli Films Are Coming to Netflix Sooner Than You Think
Not one, not two, but 21 films!
(SPOT.ph) If we asked you what your favorite Studio Ghibli film is, you would probably hate us for asking such a difficult question. Spirited Away is a classic, but My Neighbor Totoro is also a great pick. Regardless of what your number one is, any time is a good time to rewatch the beautiful animated films, and you won't have to choose just one to stream: Studio Ghibli films will stream on Netflix starting February 1.
There will be 21 films streaming in total, which will arrive on the streaming platform in three batches. Starting February 1, you can stream steampunk-inspired adventure film Laputa: Castle in the Sky, My Neighbor Totoro, the magical Kiki's Delivery Service, slice-of-life drama Only Yesterday, animated comedy Porco Rosso, Ocean Waves, which features a high-school love triangle, and Tales From Earthsea, adapted from the Ursula K. Le Guin novel of the same name.
Coming on March 1 are science-fantasy adventure Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, fantasy film Princess Mononoke, comic-strip style comedy My Neighbor the Yamadas, Spirited Away, Whisper of the Heart spin-off The Cat Returns, and fantasy films Arrietty and The Tale of Princess Kaguya.
And finally, the third batch includes Pom Poko which features adorable dog-raccoons, coming-of-age film Whisper of the Heart, the dreamy Howl's Moving Castle, underwater fantasy Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea, animated drama From Up on Poppy Hill, historical drama The Wind Rises, and mystery-drama When Marnie Was There, which all stream on April 1.
