An Unofficial Guide to the World of Studio Ghibli

Product Description

By Michael Leaer and Jake Cunningham

The young film fan's comprehensive guide to Studio Ghibli: everything about their movies, the people who create them, and the impact that Ghibli World has left on our planet.

Hello from Ghibliotheque!

We are Michael and Jake, and together we make a podcast called Ghibliotheque, all about the films of the legendary Japanese animation company, Studio Ghibli. We think that Studio Ghibli has made some of the greatest films of all time, like My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Princess Mononoke, and Spirited Away. We love nothing more than sharing these films with other people, whether that’s by watching them together on the big screen, or writing a book like the one you’re holding right now.

This book is our handy, illustrated guide to the world of Studio Ghibli, a world that is like no other. Over the following pages you’ll meet strong heroes, get to know wild and beguiling creatures, taste mouth-watering food, and travel via fast and fantastical modes of transportation. There is so much to explore and discover, so let’s quote the motto of the Ghibli Museum in Tokyo, and say: let’s get lost, together.


Across eight chapters, we will get up close and personal with the movies, learn who's who at the Oscar-winning studio and explore the impact that Ghibli World has left on our planet.
