Little White Lies

Over the last 30 years Studio Ghibli has created some of the world’s most beloved feature films. With the fabled Japanese animation house ceasing production for the foreseeable future, following the retirement of head honcho Hayao Miyazaki, we thought we’d share a selection of our favourite original Japanese posters from the Ghibli canon, ranging from Miyazaki’s 1979 theatrical debut, The Castle of Cagliostro, right up to Hiromasa Yonebayashi’s newly released When Marnie Was There. Check them out below and let us know your favourite by tweeting us @LWLies
