GKIDS- Studio Ghibli Fest 2018

Thanks to GKIDS, Fathom Events, and how they support the work of Studio Ghibli, they brought back only nine movies to select cinemas.

And those are…

  • Ponyo (March 2018)
  • The Cat Returns (April 2018)
  • Porco Rosso (May 2018)
  • Pom Poko (June 2018)
  • Princess Mononoke (July 2018)
  • Grave of the Fireflies (August 2018)
  • My Neighbor Totoro (September 2018)
  • Spirited Away (October 2018)
  • Castle in the Sky (November 2018)

Premiered at the end of each month, from March to November, they did only a 3-day event. Also, Fathom Events were dealing with the last three anime movies of “Digimon Adventure tri”, to be premiered also before the entire six part movie saga could come to a successful conclusion. So both had their hands full on those anime movies to be premiered. “Yu-Gi-Oh: The Movie” too, and placed a sweepstakes contest. (And I definitely saw that on that TV channel, YTV with my own eyes, back in the glory days of that TV channel).

Since I saw every Studio Ghibli movie on DVD, I was very pleased and surprised that they got a second chance to be premiered again in theatres. The same went for “Yu-Gi-Oh: The Movie”.

Téa Gardener in that movie, may have been frightened by undead Egyptian mummies, but Studio Ghibli never does that.

And soon, it’ll be the anniversary, of those masterpieces since it has been years. From the night that “Spirited Away” won the Oscar award for Best Animated Feature Film, to how the rest were sadly left out nominated, and the day that Hayao Miyazaki won an Honorary Oscar award for Best Lifetime Achievement, Studio Ghibli deserves more Oscar awards for their masterpieces. And how we can celebrate, anniversaries to Studio Ghibli’s masterpieces.
