Seven More Studio Ghibli Movies Are Being Added To Netflix On Wednesday

PSA: Netflix has just announced it will be adding a selection of Studio Ghibli films to its catalogue of shows tomorrow.

Taking to Twitter to announce a run down of all the latest TV programmes and films arriving on the platform, Netflix explained several more of the Japanese animation flicks would be available to watch from Wednesday 1st April.

In January, Netflix announced that they would be releasing 21 films on the streaming service and earlier this month fans were treated to the first bunch of animated classics, with films including Castle in the Sky and My Neighbour Totoro released.

In January, Netflix announced their partnership with Wild Bunch International to distribute the popular films, in order "to grow its best-in-class library of animated films."

Studio Ghibli's producer Toshio Suzuki said: "In this day and age, there are various great ways a film can reach audiences. We've listened to our fans and have made the definitive decision to stream our film catalogue. We hope people around the world will discover the world of Studio Ghibli through this experience."

This has come *just* in time for lockdown...
