Netflix he wanted to brag to their consumers streaming, who had succeeded the licence of the movies of Hayao Miyazaki in Studio Ghibli, which is added to your catalog since the last February 1, but the manner with which they had performed the treatment was a bit challenged by not saying “misleading”.
According to information from The Republic, this questionable business strategy you used Netflix with Studio Ghibli, it is understandable, because Hayao Miyazaki is known for not being an easy person to convince as to the licensing of its films and emphasized that they managed to have the titles thanks to that Miyazaki did not know how to work the streaming.
Although it may seem “misleading” this was also the new platform of HBO, Max, as you have in your catalog the films of Studio Ghibli, both in the united States and Canada, being countries where Netflix does not have authorised the licence, and the same president of studio Ghibli “Toshio Suzuki” confirmed it.
What Hayao Miyazaki did not know the streaming?
Information from Crunchyroll confirms that Toshio Suzuki announced that Netflix and HBO had success with the licenses, thanks to that “Hayao Miyazaki seems to not know how the streaming platforms”, but also added that he feels the need to understand about this form of distribution.
