Welcome to Humor Nation. Studio Ghibli is known for its wonderful and amazing anime feature films. You won’t believe, but 6 of Studio Ghibli’s films are ranked among the 10 highest-grossing anime feature films which are made in Japan. The name ‘Ghibli’ was chosen by Hayao Miyazaki which came from the Italian word ‘Ghibli’ which came from the Liyan Arabic name meaning the hot desert wins. Thus the idea was that Studio Ghibli would start a new wind in the anime industry which it successfully did. The Studio was formed by Isao Takahata and Hayao Miyazaki. Both of them had long illustrious careers in the Japanese animation industry and worked together on many projects such as Panda! Go, Panda! and Hols: Prince of the Sun!’
While many people consider Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind to be the first feature film of Studio Ghibli. But it is in fact not because the film was released before the founding of the Studio. The first Studio Ghibli film was Castle in the Sky which was released in 1986. Another interesting fact is that Studio Ghibli does indeed uses CGI in its films, but it is never used more than 10% of the entire finished film.
