Studio Ghibli just launched its first-ever official English-language social media channels on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. The channels are intended to reach the studio’s North American fans.
GKIDS is extending its long-term relationship with Studio Ghibli and will manage the new social media channels. You can find them at:
Through the new social media accounts, fans can celebrate the artistry of Studio Ghibli and engage with other Ghibli fans. It also provides access to reliable news, new product releases, events, and other notable information pertaining to the revered Japanese animation studio.
“In the wake of a watershed year of expanded access to Studio Ghibli’s expansive catalog via the global streaming and digital launch, these films remain an ever-present topic across social media platforms,” said GKIDS’ Director of Marketing Erica Chon.
“To keep pace with the abundance of conversation surrounding the Studio and their North American partners, the official social media accounts are a natural next step in keeping fans up to date with all of the latest news from Studio Ghibli. We’re excited to launch the @GhibliUSA channels to bring the beauty and wonder of Studio Ghibli films to expanded audiences.”
