“Studio Ghibli’s animated films are legendary and have enthralled fans around the world for over 35 years,” Netflix said in a statement upon the announce of the new deal.
“We’re excited to make them available in more languages across Latin America, Europe, Africa and Asia – so that more people can enjoy this whimsical and wonderful world of animation.”
The films will be available in the UK alongside a number of other countries, though the US, Canada and Japan have been excluded.
