Castle Minisode 2: Studio Ghibli

For this episode, we are diverting a wee bit from books and authors to give a shout out to Studio Ghibli. This Japanese film production company is a maker of beautiful, whimsical movies that are pure delight.

As we mentioned in our Howl’s Moving Castle episode, that book was adapted by Studio Ghibli into a film that provokes a bit of disagreement between us! But we both agree that overall the Ghibli films are magical and well worth seeking out.

In this minisode we discuss what we love about Ghibli movies, some of our most and least favourites, and recommend some to start out with if you are new to these films.
We hope you enjoy!

Clockwise from top left: Howl’s Moving Castle (Studio Ghibli/GKids); Spirited Away (Studio Ghibli – NDDTM/GKids); Kiki’s Delivery Service (Eiko Kadono/Studio Ghibli); My Neighbour Totoro (Studio Ghibli/GKids)
