Like many others, I am a huge fan of Studio Ghibli movies. Hayao Miyazaki’s world-building in Ghibli animations are both bizarre and comforting. And if you’re anything like me, you’d be pleased to know that the studio has released 400 free-to-use images from eight of its classic movies.
“From this month, we will provide scene photos of all Studio Ghibli works in sequence. This month, we will provide 8 works, mainly new works, for a total of 400 pieces. Feel free to use it within the bounds of common sense,” said the studio on their site.
Here are some examples of images released by Studio Ghibli:
Tales from Earthsea
The Secret World of Arrietty
From Up on Poppy Hill
The Wind Rises
The Tale of The Princess Kaguya
When Marnie Was There
Studio Ghibli also plans to release images from all of its films over time. But for now, a total of 400 images from 8 films means that you can look through them in detail and appreciate the artwork and illustrations that make the films.
Previously, Studio Ghibli also released images that would be good for video conference backgrounds. But there’s no harm in looking through the 400 images to find yourself your own personal favourite background picture. I’m partial to this one.
