Netflix is bringing Spirited Away, the film that brought Japanese animation house Studio Ghibli to western mainstream attention, from today.

Despite being released in 2003, many people are only now being introduced to the magic and artistry of Studio Ghibli, all thanks to Netflix acquiring 21 films from the iconic animation film studio earlier this year.


Instead of releasing them all at once though, Netflix has been spreading out the treats by staggering the release of the animated movies. From today, March 1, the very best Studio Ghibli film Spirited Away is available to stream, and it’s an absolute gem.
