For the first time ever, Studio Ghibli‘s entire collection of lauded anime will be available for fans to purchase digitally.

The esteemed Japanese animation company’s catalogue includes classics like Academy Award winner Spirited Away, and five other Oscar-nominated titles: Howl’s Moving Castle, The Wind Rises, The Tale of the Princess Kaguya, When Marnie Was There, and The Red Turtle, which was co-produced with Wild Bunch.

According to Variety, the films will be available on “all major digital transactional platforms.” This also suggests each film will be made available to purchase on iTunes, Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV, and Google Play Store. Additionally Ghibli films will be made available to stream in the US through HBO Max, however they have not yet been available to purchase digitally anywhere online.

The Studio Ghibli catalog also includes Castle in the Sky, The Cat Returns, From Up on Poppy Hill, Kiki’s Delivery Service, My Neighbor Totoro, My Neighbors the Yamadas, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, Ocean Waves, Only Yesterday, Pom Poko, Ponyo, Porco Rosso, Princess Mononoke, The Secret World of Arrietty, The Tale of the Princess Kaguya, Tales From Earthsea, and Whisper of the Heart.

The Ghibli movies will be available to purchase in either Japanese or English from December 17 by US distributor GKids at a suggested retail price of $19.99 USD per film. The Wind Rises is the studio’s only film that will not be available for digital purchase this year; that film will be available for digital purchase in the third quarter of 2020.
