Okay, so, don’t freak out, but all 21 of Studio Ghibli’s INCREDIBLE films are coming to Aussie Netflix this year, and oh boy am I excited.
From February 2020, 21 films from the legendary animation house Studio Ghibli are coming exclusively to Netflix.
We’re proud to bring beloved, influential stories like Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle and My Neighbour Totoro to first-time viewers and high-flying fans alike. pic.twitter.com/955uiYAzA1

Does this make up for the fact that Netflix removed all the Harry Potter movies off their service? No, but I will take it as a peace offering.
Studio Ghibli has finally given Netflix exclusive streaming rights to all their films globally (except for the US, Canada and Japan), meaning you can finally have complete access to all your hand-animated faves, right from your couch.

Wholesome as ever, Studio Ghibligave Netflix their streaming rights after for the sake of their fans, saying they hope that through Netflix, people from all over the world will discover the magic of Studio Ghibli.
It’s clear that Netflix is really out to beat Disney Plus, now partnering with both Nickelodeon (which includes a new Avatar: The Last Airbender series!!!!!!), and Studio Ghibli.
