Studio Ghibli has uploaded four hundred images spanning eight films for free use. However, the website does mention that while these uploaded images can be used freely, that they must be used within the realm of “common sense.” This announcement was made on September 18, 2020 and as of now the entire gallery is available to view on the Studio Ghibli website. [Thanks, 4Gamer!]
These works include the Studio Ghibli films Spirited Away, Ponyo, Tales from Earthsea, The Tale of Princess Kaguya, From Up on Poppy Hill, The Wind Rises, When Marnie Was There, and Arrietty. All of the images uploaded are 1920×1038 and are in high detail, meaning the possibilities are endless as to what you will be able to do with them.
Each film has fifty images uploaded in their individual sets. These images are available to view and download internationally.
While there are tags for films like My Neighbor Totoro, Princess Mononoke, and Grave of the Fireflies listed at the bottom of the page, no images have been uploaded to these film listings.
Studio Ghibli’s most recent film, Aya and the Witch will be the studio’s first 3D animated film. A first look at the upcoming movie was shared in July. This included a look at character designs and a short synopsis of the story.
