Studio Ghibli Movies

Studio Ghibli was co-founded by Japanese director Hayao Miyazaki in 1985 and has since produced many of our favorite animated films. We love how Miyazaki's movies often have a strong girl at the center of the story and how lovingly he portrays the delights of childhood. (A few of the titles on this list are distributed, rather than produced, by Studio Ghibli, but they retain the high quality the studio is known for.)
