Studio Ghibli


Since Studio Ghibli is still stuck in purgatory, and haven't announced a new feature since all of that financial weirdness reared its ugly head some time ago, When Marnie Was There might possibly be the studio's final film. ...


Isao Takahata is one of the directors out of Studio Ghibli that seems to be less discussed by fans in the west.  Takahata is responsible for directing some of the most riveting and eerie films to come from the Japanese a...


To celebrate the release of Studio Ghibli's most recent film, The Tale of Princess Kaguya, on home media this Tuesday, retailers Amazon.com and Best Buy have rolled out some crazy good prices for previous Ghibli DVDs and blu-...


Although there were a few rumblings of Studio Ghibli closing its doors a few weeks back, thankfully none of those rumors came to be as the company's just getting its act together. Case in point, The Tale of Princess Kaguya i...




Studio Ghibli's films are so damn pretty, I don't even need to understand what anyone is saying. That's why this Japanese trailer for their latest film, When Marnie Was There, is perfect for me. In much better quality than t...


While I may only like a small selection of Studio Ghibli's films, there's no mistaking their quality. Based on the Japanese tale "The Tale of Bamboo Cutter" and directed by Isao Takahata (Grave of the Fireflies), Princess Kag...


Based on Joan G. Robinson's novel of the same name, When Marnie is There is about a lonely little girl who befriends a ghost. I've never read the book myself, but if it's being adapted by Studio Ghibli, I'm sure it's equal p...


While I'm not the most well versed Studio Ghibli fan at Flixist, even someone with little knowledge like myself can't deny how beautiful their films are. Based on the book by Joan G. Robinson, and handled by The Secret World ...


Hayao Miyazaki's The Wind Rises (which could very well be his final film before retirement) has been inching closer and closer to a domestic release after it's fly through Japan. Shortly after getting the first US trailer for...


After the credits rolled at the screening of The Wind Rises at this year's New York Film Festival, Hubert and I spent the next hour talking about the film, what we liked and didn’t like, where we thought it succeeded or...


I'm really excited to be seeing Hayao Miyazaki's The Wind Rises at the New York Film Festival. If you're not attending the NYFF screenings and live in New York or Los Angeles, you'll be able to catch Miyazaki's final fea...


There was a shock at the Venice Film Festival last weekend when Studio Ghibli president Koji Hoshino announced that The Wind Rises would be Hayao Miyazaki's last feature film. Miyazaki has talked about retirement since 1997's...


When the Sabrina the Teenage Witch show aired as part of ABC's TGIF lineup, I thought it was the neatest show (but Boy Meets World had it beat, hands down) since the animatronic cat on the program was named Salem and was voic...


With Studio Ghibli's The Wind Rises sitting at number one for four weeks running in Japan, and what's sure to be a successful festival tour picking up with the Venice Film Festival one would believe that everything was ...


We shared a brief teaser of Hayao Miyazaki's The Wind Rises (Kaze Tachinu) a few weeks ago, but now we have a gorgeous four-minute trailer for the film. It's preceded by some promo material featuring Miyazaki and a few fello...


As we mentioned yesterday, Mondo has some awesome stuff lined up for this year's San Diego Comic Con. In addition to their awesome lineup of six posters by various artists for Guillermo del Toro's upcoming Pacific Rim that we...


We're nearing the Japanese release of both of Studio Ghibli's next films -- Kaze Tachinu (The Wind Rises) comes out on July 20 and Takahata Isao's Kaguya-hime no Monogatari (The Tale of Princess Kaguya) hits this Fall. T...


Here is your first very brief look at Hayao Miyazaki's new film, The Wind Rises. The footage aired on Japanese television and reveals a kind of pastoral whimsy and a bird plane. It's not much (about 30 seconds), but it's ver...


Reportedly getting a trailer sometime this week, The Wind Rises is Hayao Miyazaki's next upcoming project and like anything he does even a few stills/posters are gorgeous. The film is based off of a manga of the same nam...


What do you get when the director of Neon Genesis Evangelion and animator for Nausicaa Of The Valley The Wind, Anno Hideaki, commissions a short film, gets direction by Higuchi Shinji (animator on Evangelion), and a gia...


A few weeks ago, we brought news of a potential live-action adaptation of Kiki's Delivery Service to be directed by The Grudge series creator Takashi Shimizu. Today, Twitch has confirmed the film's production, as well as...


You may remember that there was a planned UK stage adaptation of Hayao Miyazaki's Princess Mononoke. Whole Hog, the theater company responsible for this live-action adaptation, turned to Kickstarter to help make the play the ...


Again, this is a rumor coming from Twitch Film. Don’t be too hasty about this being true or not. So Twitch was told that Japanese horror director Takashi Shimizu (Ju-On and The Grudge) has come on board to direct a live...


The non-fantasy based Studio Ghibli films are pretty limited. In fact if we rule out My Neighbors the Yamadas considering its animation style and tone make it pretty cartoonish there hasn't been one since Grave of the Fi...


We all know Hayao Miyazaki is a master of his craft, and if you live in New York, you're in for a real treat. The Brooklyn Academy of Music is doing an eight-film Miyazaki retrospective this weekend and next weekend. BAM will...


Two years after its Japanese premiere, From Up on Poppy Hill is getting prepped for a US release this March. A few days after the film's official poster was released, we have the first trailer complete with US voiceovers. Th...


I don't think there are really words enough for me to describe the affection I feel towards Studio Ghibli and the wonderful films they create. From Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind all the way up to The Secret of Ariet...


In recent years, a lot of animated movies have been formulaic and underwhelming, but 2012 brought us the variety and quality that has been missing in the genre for a while. Sure, Disney brought back Beauty and the Beast, Find...


The Studio Ghibli retrospective in New York City is entering its final week now. As that draws to a close, we're getting a small taste of Studio Ghibli's output for next year. Two posters have dropped, one for Hayao Miyazaki'...


Last week we reported on the theatrical re-release of Grave of the Fireflies, but there's some other news regarding the saddest movie ever made. UK-based Dresden Pictures has picked up the British film rights for a live-actio...


Grave of the Fireflies will return to theaters next year to commemorate its 25th anniversary. This theatrical re-release is thanks to GKIDS, the group also responsible for last year's touring Studio Ghibli retrospective as we...


Back in September we reported on a stage adaptation of Hayao Miyazaki's Princess Mononoke, which is being put on by the Whole Hog Theatre in London. Tickets for their April 2013 shows have already sold out, but Whole Hog is ...


About this time last year there was a great Studio Ghibli retrospective in New York City, which eventually made its way around the country. I'm happy to report that it's back again this year thanks to the IFC Center and GKIDS...


Talk about ambitious. The London-based Whole Hog Theater company is adapting Princess Mononoke into a stage play, which will be performed next year. The show will run from April 2nd to April 6th at the New Diorama Theater. Ti...


From Up on Poppy Hill is the newest full length movie to come out of Japanese animation powerhouse Studio Ghibli. Based on a manga by Chizuru Takahashi and Tetsurō Sayama, Poppy Hill's screenplay was adapted by Ghibli m...


Now here is a man whose works I eagerly anticipate! So as I deliver this news to you I want you to know that my heart is brimming with joy! Acclaimed director Hayao Miyazaki's next film will be a biopic of Jiro Horikoshi, the...


Ghibli Time! Come on, grab your friends, we'll go to a very distant land with Cake the Catbus and Fiona the human, the fun will never end, it's Ghibli Time! An awesome artist who just goes by David on his Tumblr has been crea...


Coming soon to a Gene Siskel Film Center near you - if you live in Chicago that is - is Castles in the Sky, a series of screenings in tribute to Studio Ghibli. Studio Ghibli is one of the most popular and influential animatio...


Wow, this Japanese trailer for Pixar's highly anticipated princess movie Brave is pretty amazing. Not only does it have new footage from the previously released English trailer, somehow the Japanese voice-overs make it sound...


Now that we've all had enough time to see The Secret World of Arrietty, I'll be giving everyone another week to see the Borrowers remake that they should have already rushed out to see. With everyone caught up on the Studio G...
