Are you a fan of Studio Ghibli? And wish you could collect all of its films in a single digital library? If that is the case, then it seems the holiday season has come early for you. Today, GKIDS confirmed the digital release of Studio Ghibli's library has gone live, and you can buy them from your preferred retailer right now.
"As of today, films will be available to purchase in both English and Japanese languages on all major digital transactional platforms, including Apple TV, Amazon VOD, Vudu, Google Play, Sony, Microsoft and FandangoNow," the company announced.
