Studio Ghibli

Off the Highway

Let's be real, the top tier animation studios consist of Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios & Studio Ghibli. Co-founded by Hayao Miyazaki, Studio Ghibli has been able to consistently put out great content, with no lack in creativity or imagination.

Studio Ghibli produces animated films made for both children and adults, and explores stories and themes not found in other movies. Their films usually tend to have environmental, anti-war themes, and often feature strong female characters. Studio Ghibli was truly ahead of its time, and maybe still is.

Join Off the Highway regulars, Chazz, Wes and Sumner, as they are joined by their friend & editor Joli (The Lunch Table Podcast) as they begin a series on the Japanese anime legend, Studio Ghibli.
