The good news is that Netflix just got the rights to stream pretty much every major Studio Ghibli release, from Totoro to Princess Mononoke to Ponyo. Even better news: Australians can get it all.

Ghibli’s homeland has its own rights deals, and in North America HBO Max has access to the catalogue, but today’s announcement means literally everywhere else, from Europe to Australasia, will have access to the following movies as part of their Netflix subscriptions, and they’ll start rolling out from February through to April.

From The Hollywood Reporter:

Feb. 1: Castle in the Sky (1986), My Neighbour Totoro (1988), Kiki’s Delivery Service (1989), Only Yesterday (1991), Porco Rosso (1992), Ocean Waves (1993), Tales from Earthsea (2006)

March 1: Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (1984), Princess Mononoke (1997), My Neighbours the Yamadas (1999), Spirited Away (2001), The Cat Returns (2002), Arrietty (2010), The Tale of The Princess Kaguya (2013)

April 1: Pom Poko (1994), Whisper of the Heart (1995), Howl’s Moving Castle (2004), Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea (2008), From Up on Poppy Hill (2011), The Wind Rises (2013), When Marnie Was There (2014).

Netflix is going to provide subtitles in 28 languages, while there will be dubs available in 20.

    Wonder which rips they are. I have the blu ray box set and they are amazing

      wondering the same thing as i have the madman blu rays also

    Aww yeah! Ghibli discs never seem to be on special. Time for some binging

    Is there a decent English dub of Kiki's Delivery Service? I love that movie in Japanese, but the English version I once came across on SBS (with Phil Hartman as Jiji) was damn near unwatchable. I know people that I'd love to recommend it to for their kids, but they wouldn't be able to / want to read subtitles and I probably couldn't in good conscience recommend it in English if that's still the soundtrack they're using.

      As a Phil Hartman fan I had no issue with it.

    Good news!Now I don't have to get off my arse to change discs.

    Look! The people are like rubbish!

    such classic

    Now that's how you take on Disney.

      Lost Disney? Get yourself some Japanese Disney.

    Ah fek. I just cancelled my netfix account for amazon and the Picard show.

      How is that show? Worth getting amazon for?
