Besides the start of a new month, today [April 1] also marks something else: seven new Studio Ghibli films were released on Netflix today.

In January, the streaming service announced that they acquired 21 films from the animation studio - and have been staggering the release of said films ever since.

"Studio Ghibli’s animated films are legendary and have enthralled fans around the world for over 35 years," a spokesperson for Netflix said at the time.
