Final Batch Of Studio Ghibli Films Has Been Added To Netflix
Netflix has announced the final batch of Studio Ghibli films has finally landed on its platform.
The streaming service revealed earlier this year that 21 movies were being dropped sporadically over several weeks, delighting many around the world.
The first to hit were some of the most famous, however this latest selection still includes some cult favourites.
The films released today are Howl's Moving Castle, Ponyo, The Wind Rises, When Marnie Was There, Pom Poko, From Up on Poppy Hill and Whisper of the Heart.
Netflix kicked things off at the start of February by adding Castle in the Sky, My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki's Delivery Service, Only Yesterday, Porco Rosso, Ocean Waves and Tales From Earthsea.
Then, from the beginning of March, viewers were able to stream Nausicaä Of The Valley Of The Wind, Princess Mononoke, My Neighbors The Yamadas, Spirited Away, The Cat Returns, Arrietty and The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya.
This will give hours upon hours of entertainment while you're cooped up inside your home.
The studio hasn't been able to get all the rights to the 1988 classic Grave of the Fireflies, so you'll have to find some other way of listening to the score from that film. Still, if you're looking for the rest of its catalogue, then you're sorted.

Apple Music's editor writes: "Music has long played a central role at Japan's Ghibli, heightening the whimsy and drama of the studio's beloved animated films.
"Prolific composer Joe Hisaishi has created delicate and sweeping orchestral pieces for directors like Hayao Miyazaki, while pop-based theme songs for films such as My Neighbour Totoro and Ponyo have been delighting listeners around the globe for decades."
