HBO Max kicks off Wednesday with an abundance of noisy hit Warner Bros. Movies and herald television shows. Yet tucked inside platforms 10 000 hours of programming is the jewel of film catalog from Japanese Animation house Studio Ghibli, which has garnered both accolades and critical reverence in its 35-year history but whose work has remained elusive to many streaming services that have come calling over years. Founded in 1985 by filmmakers Hayao Miyazaki, Isao Takahata and Toshio Suzuki, Studio Ghibli has made 21 Animated features, earned five Oscar nominations and one statuette for Miyazakis ' 2002 Spirit Away, Japan's highest-grossing film. The studio and its celebrity director, Miyazaki, have long been subjects of cult adoration. Collectors have been hunting down DVD releases for decades. Studio Ghibli Museum has been a prominent tourist attraction in Mitaka, Japan, since opening in 2001, and the three-year-old Studio Ghibli Fest, held annually in theaters across the United States by its North American distributor, GKids, and Fathom Events, sells out instantly. Yet, despite adoration, Studio Ghibli has never been able to cross over into the mass market. Now, these elusive titles will all be housed in one place, prominently displayed next to HBO Maxs better-know properties, in a move that could transform Studio Ghibli from bespoke manufacturer of beautiful hand-drawn Animation into the mass-market mainstream. Ghibli films have been seen by a wide range of audiences worldwide, say Suzuki, architect behind the creation of Studio. However, in the States, it wasnt really working as we had expect. People would come to theaters to watch Ghibli films on the East Coast and West Coast, but in the Midwest region, it was hard to get people into theaters. We think this would be a great opportunity. GKids president, David Jesteadt, had been urging Studio Ghibli to go digital for years, only to be repeatedly shut down by three founders. Digital was antithetical to Studio Ghiblis philosophy of care and mindfulness. There is strong emphasis on presentation and less focus on finances in terms of trying to maximize revenue like other film companies, Jesteadt say. Plus, he add, there was little need. The Ghiblis catalog is so legendary in its own right that home video sales have really been fantastic for 20 years, he say. Even as the rest of the industry was looking AT declines and finding ways to offset revenue with different streams, they were experiencing that same impact. For one, Studio Ghibli has undergone transformation in the past few years. Miyazaki announced his retirement in 2013 after finishing Oscar-nominate Wind Rises and soon after closed Studio. Five years later, Takahata dies and the remaining founders begin discussing how to preserve Studio Ghiblis legacy. Miyazakis son Goro began work on Studio Ghiblis's first computer-Animation project, still untitled film center on a young girl, character Suzuki call wisest person on Earth.

A Gripping Adventure

Miyazaki is known for his love of airplanes, which is already evident in his 1986 steampunk adventure Castle in Sky. His most recently released movie, 2013's Wind Rises, is a biopic of Japanese fighter plane inventor Horikoshi, Jiro. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best animated Feature. But for real dogfight action and lots of mechanics fussing over airplane parts, check out Miyazaki's 1992 movie Porco Rosso, which Feature flying pig in actuality, World War I ace pilot transformed by curse.

Mesmerizing Animation

In his films, Miyazaki has long had a fascination with flight, which already lends itself well to animation. Wind rise centers on the life of Jiro Horikoshi, who is just as captivated with aeronautics, having a dream of being a pilot as a boy. He grows up to become a successful aviation engineer, and the film explores the Jiro conflict as Japan Uses his personal joy to violent ends in World War II. The story is a relatively straightforward historical drama, without the usual magic and spirits that characterize Miyazakis ' best work, but the animation is unforgettable, with breathtaking earthquake scene early on and beautiful dreamscapes capturing the whirl of Jiro's imagination.


Honorable mention: Castle in the Sky

While Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli are often seen as one in same by the English-speaking world, Ghibli co-founder Takahata was just as crucial to shaping Studio's body of work. Grave of Fireflies is undoubtedly his most celebrated film. Tragedy focuses on the journey of Seita and Setsuko, two young children struggling for survival in the final months of World War II, Grave of Fireflies is often canonized as one of the great anti-War movies. Despite being an anti-War advocate, Takahata disagrees. More than anything, Grave of Fireflies is a movie about indifference and isolation. Seita and Setsuko's struggle is known to many, but that suffering is ignore. Grave of Fireflies is a haunting, visceral movie unlike anything I've ever experienced in animation. Takahata himself lives through War and much of the movie is directly inspired by his own experiences. At one point, Seita and Setsuko find themselves in the midst of an air raid on the city of Okayama. Bombs make a strange hissing sound as they fall from the sky, detail only someone like Takahata could have observe. Many TV shows and movies that feature incendiary bombs are not accurate, he explained in an interview with Japan Times. They include no sparks or explosions. I was there and I experienced it, so I know what it was like. The movie has an ending so brutal and truthful that, morning after watching for the first time, I could barely even look at the cover of the DVD. Grave of Fireflies isn't just a reminder of the destructive horror of large-scale conflict, it's warning to future generations to preserve our share of humanity and to act in the presence of those who suffer.

New to streaming and DVD

Studio Ghibli producer Toshio Suzuki confirmed director Hayao Miyazaki has no idea what streaming is. According to Crunchyroll, when attendees of an exhibition for Story of Ghibli Museum photobook asked Suzuki about why Ghibli's ban on streaming was finally lift, he attributed much of the decision to Miyazaki's lack of knowledge of the subject. Hayao Miyazaki doesn't know what streaming services are, Suzuki say. He doesn't use computers or smartphones. Because of this, Suzuki was unable to convince Miyazaki to sell streaming rights to Ghibli's extensive catalog to outside companies. Suzuki also states that even though Miyazaki is not well-verse in the streaming world, they both agree on its potential. Is interested in new movies that are being made on Netflix. It's more likely that new films will be created for Netflix's Service, Suzuki affirm. As a film creator, even though I think that cinemas and DVD's are important, I also think that digital distribution is important. Studio Ghibli promised its 21 films-including, but not limited to Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle, Princess Mononoke and Castle in Sky-would be available for Netflix and HBO Max subscribers. American viewers, however, will only have access to a list of movies on HBO Max, which debuts May 20.
