Ni No Kuni Movie Hits Netflix Later This Month (VIDEO)

Ni No Kuni Movie Hits Netflix Later This Month (VIDEO)

Netflix has a ton of titles heading its way for the remainder of the month, but one selection that surprised everyone was the confirmed addition of the Ni No Kuni movie. Inspired by the likes of acclaimed anime makers Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli, the vibrant video game series received an inevitable anime adaptation in Japan earlier last year. Since dropping in theaters, little was revealed about the film’s release westward, but it looks like eager fans can rest easy as it’s now set to hit the streaming service on January 16th.

As covered by Prima Games, the debuting film is directed by Studio Ghibli animator Yoshiyuki Momose, whose previous credits include the classic film Spirited Away as well as previous Ni No Kuni games. While Ghibli isn’t helming the project themselves, Japanese studio OLM looks to have captured a similarly sweeping and whimsical vibe that seems very in-line with the games. Check out the English dub trailer for the movie below alongside an official description from Netflix.
