21 Studio Ghibli films will be arriving on Netflix, starting from next month.
If you’ve been anywhere near a social networking site over the past 24 hours, you may already know this news. But you know what? It’s worth knowing more than once.
In a boost for the accessibility of its incredible catalogue of films, 21 movies from the Studio Ghibli catalogue are heading to Netflix UK. They’ll come with subtitles and dubbed versions, and it seems as though the only film that won’t be coming will be Grave Of The Fireflies, which is held up in rights issues.
