Studio Ghibli announced on their website today they will be will releasing high-quality images from all their films on the website in batches starting from this month. On the blog post announcing the news, the studio says that the screenshots are "free to use" but only "within the bounds of common sense." A very Ghibli way of putting it.

Look forward to more "free to use" images on the Studio Ghibli website coming in the next few months, I know I'm excited to have official high-quality images to use as backgrounds!
