Studio Ghibli Fest 2022 Slate Announced

Fathom Events and GKIDS today announced Studio Ghibli Fest 2022, which will highlight seven beloved films from the acclaimed studios. The Fest will kick off in theaters this spring and run through the fall. You can watch the announcement trailer by scrolling down.

Studio Ghibli Fest 2022 will begin with 25th-anniversary screenings of the epic historical fantasy Princess Mononoke. Written and directed by Academy Award winner Hayao Miyazaki, Princess Mononoke held Japan’s box office record for domestic films for four years until it was unseated by another Studio Ghibli film, Spirited Away.

The slate of films will also include the Oscar-nominated fantasy epic Howl’s Moving Castle and the critically-acclaimed Ponyo. Celebrating its 20th anniversary is The Cat Returns, the fantastical adventure where the Baron from Whisper of the Heart returns to the big screen.

Rounding out the series, the intimate and timeless drama Only Yesterday, from Academy Award-nominated director and Studio Ghibli co-founder Isao Takahata joins this year’s spectacular lineup, in its first-ever nationwide theatrical release in North America.
