Netflix has recently announced that it has acquired the entire films of Studio Ghibli, the Japanese studio directed by Hayao Miyazaki, the man behind Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, and My Neighbor Totoro.
Though the news has tickled the fans in pink, the Studio Ghibli’s fans have to wait first before watching the movies on Netflix, especially those who live in the US.
From February 2020, 21 films from the legendary animation house Studio Ghibli are coming exclusively to Netflix.

Sending the dans down in dumps, Studio Ghibli—in fact, has been acquired first by HBO Max, the premium package for the movies under HBO. Thus, though Netflix America has a long list of foreign movies in its catalogue, Studio Ghibli still won’t be on them, but if you’re watching from Netflix on other countries, you probably can see How’s Moving Castle, Ponyo On the Cliff, By The Sea, When Marnie Was There, and more.
