With the last couple of years really making it hard for this great tradition to continue, 2023 continues to be the proper full return of Studio Ghibli Fest. The partnership between GKIDS and Fathom Events to bring out the films throughout the year as events have delighted a lot of people and made it a fantastic opportunity to introduce young kids to it for the first time in the best way – on the big screen.
With the next film in the series coming up at the beginning of August with Princess Mononoke, GKIDS has now dropped their first teaser trailer spot for it to get people excited and reach others that don’t know that the program is returning.
Each event will be shown in both original Japanese and English dubbed versions and will include exclusive bonus content. Tickets for STUDIO GHIBLI FEST 2023 can be purchased online by visiting FathomEvents.com, GhibliFest.com or at participating theater box offices. (Theaters and participants are subject to change).
