Studio Ghibli films are some of the best animation in the business … and they’re notoriously hard to stream. As of next month, however, that’s about to get a lot easier thanks to Netflix.
21 Studio Ghibli films will be added to Netflix Australia this year – but not Netflix in the US or Japan. They’ll be added in three blocks, with seven films added at the start of February, March and April.
From February 2020, 21 films from the legendary animation house Studio Ghibli are coming exclusively to Netflix.
