Masters of Japanese animation films

Studio Ghibli is a Japanese animation film studio. Through its refined, profound and poetic films that tackle universal questions and subjects specific to Japanese society, the directors have created animation movies famous worldwide.

The other popular films, such as Grave of the Fireflies (1988), My Neighbor Totoro (1988), Castle in the Sky (1986), and others, were not published until later, bringing the Western audience the rest of previous achievements. Today, the newly released films are distributed almost simultaneously outside of Japan.

Among the biggest successes of Studio Ghibli, we also note the most recent: Howl's Moving Castle (2004), Ponyo (2008), and The Wind Rises (2013). The latter was supposed to mark the retirement of Miyazaki, but the genius never stops!

Beyond many official stores located in several major Japanese cities (where you can purchase all kinds of merchandise), there is a Ghibli Museum located in the west of Tokyo. Victim of its success and being very secretive, it only welcomes visitors who have taken care to book their tickets in advance!

But that's not all: A Ghibli theme park will open near Nagoya in 2022. According to the announcements, it will be a park based on My Neighbor Totoro. This film stages a magical character that looks like a combination of an owl, cat and raccoon ("Totoro") ruling over the forest and guaranteeing the good balance of nature. There is a lot of secrecy around the project, but fans cannot wait to visit.
