Netflix is focusing on making more anime

The global popularity of Hayao Miyazaki’s classic works is strong outside of Japan.

Get ready for the ultimate movie night because Netflix has acquired the rights to 21 feature films from beloved Japanese animation house Studio Ghibli. However, the films will only be available on the streaming service for regions outside the United States, Canada, and Japan.

The movies will be added to the library in waves starting next month on the first.

But don’t be so quick to be sad North American fans because WarnerMedia did announce that it had obtained U.S. streaming rights to the Studio Ghibli films and they will launch in spring on HBO Max.

Previously, Studio Ghibli refused to offer digital versions of its content in any format, but as of last month, the animation house began selling downloadable copies.

Netflix’s acquisition of the movies will bring classics like “Spirited Away,” “Howl’s Moving Castle” and “My Neighbor Totoro” to Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and the Americas. The films will be subtitled in 28 languages and dubbed in 20.

However, unlike HBO Max, Netflix’s deal will not offer “Grave of the Fireflies” because Studio Ghibli does not have the publishing rights to the film.
