This team, made up of workers from the legendary Miyazaki and Takahata studio, has already presented several works to the world
In 2015 he was born Studio Ponoc, a working group made up of former Ghibli employees. With these characteristics, and given the advanced age of Hayao Miyazaki, many saw in this team the heir to the legendary entertainer. Years later, the reality is quite different, since Ponoc is in a delicate economic situation for the failure of his most recent work.
However, today I am not here to talk to you about dramas. What I am going to tell you is where to watch all Studio Ponoc films legally in Spain. I already tell you that He does not yet have a very extensive filmography, so seeing them all is not too difficult a challenge. Let’s go with the list!T
Mary and the witch’s flower
- Year: 2017 🗓
- Duration: 1 hour 43 minutes ⏱
“Mary and the Witch’s Flower” was Studio Ponoc’s first film. Its director is Hiromasa Yonabayashiwho played the same role in two of Studio Ghibli’s most recent films: “Arrietty and the Little World” and “Marnie’s Memory.”
The truth is that it is not easy to see this film currently in our country. Without a doubt, the best option is look for it in physical format either go to Apple TV+ to rent it (€2.99) or buy it (€4.99). Since your rights in Spain are held by Selecta Visión, Presumably it will end up coming to Animebox.

We now find ourselves with a very different product from “Mary and the Witch’s Flower.” And it is that “Humble Heroes” is a collection of three independent shorts. Each of them tells three different stories, each with its own characters.
Unlike what happened with the previous film, this medium-length film can be seen in a very simple way. And it is that It is part of the Netflix catalog. By appearing as an original film of hiswe can assume that It will not disappear from said platform.

“The Imaginary” is the most recent work by Studio Ponoc. So much so that, at the time of writing this article, it has not yet been released in the West. In Japan, his film debut has ended with very poor figures at the box office (You have more details in the link I left in the first paragraph of the article).
Although it has not yet been released in Spain or in other territories outside the Country of the Rising Sun, its arrival to our borders is assured. And it is that Netflix has announced that it will release the film throughout the world after reaching an agreement with Studio Ponoc. This treatment seems to also affect future works of the studio.
And here comes this article, in which I tell you where to watch all Studio Ponoc films in Spain. Before finishing, I would like to ask you… which is your favorite? Are you missing anything to see? I invite you to give your opinion about all this in the comments. I read you!
