From releasing its movies on Netflix to offering free Zoom backgrounds, the famously secretive Studio Ghibli has started to open up recently, giving fans even more access to its whimsical world. The animation studio isn’t finished giving out freebies just yet though. Earlier this month, Ghibli kindly released hundreds of still images from its movies to the public, without charge.
Ghibli fans can now freely download a whopping 400 images from eight of the studio’s movies, including Ponyo, Spirited Away, and The Tale of Princess Kaguya. The special archive was released with a personal note from Ghibli producer, Toshio Suzuki, who wrote, “Please use them freely within the scope of common sense.”
Whether you want to use them as your screensaver or print them out to decorate your home, the stunning collection is brimming with colorful, inspiring imagery. Even just browsing through the collection online is a treat—each still gives a more detailed look into the artistry that goes into creating Ghibli’s incredible hand-drawn animations. The best part? There’s also a promise of more images to come in the near future.
Check out some of the images from the archive below and find the full collection on the Ghibli website.
