Studio Ghibli’s “The Boy and the Heron” to stream on Netflix soon

Netflix has expanded its international catalog by renewing its agreement with Goodfellas and GKIDS for the streaming rights of Studio Ghibli’s films, excluding the US and Japan. This collaboration will introduce “The Boy and the Heron,” Hayao Miyazaki’s latest work and his first feature film in a decade. The streaming date on Netflix will be disclosed later.

In addition to “The Boy and the Heron,” Netflix will continue to offer 22 other Studio Ghibli films, including acclaimed titles like “Spirited Away,” “Princess Mononoke,” “Arrietty,” “Kiki’s Delivery Service,” “My Neighbor Totoro,” and “The Tale of The Princess Kaguya.” These films will be available with subtitles in 28 languages and dubbed in up to 20 languages.

The deal ensures that Studio Ghibli’s influential animations remain accessible to viewers in Asia Pacific, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America. Studio Ghibli has a significant following worldwide, and its films are known for their storytelling and animation quality.

This move by Netflix, Goodfellas, and GKIDS reflects a commitment to preserving the global availability of Studio Ghibli’s works. By maintaining a diverse selection of films, Netflix aims to cater to a wide audience, ensuring that the rich legacy of Japanese animation can be enjoyed by viewers around the world. The partnership highlights the importance of accessibility in the digital age, allowing fans from various regions to experience the magic of Studio Ghibli’s storytelling.
