Studio Ghibli is well-known among anime fans for maintaining a ''very'' strict anti-editing policy when they license their films for international distribution – although they have no problem with foreign companies translating credits or dubbing dialogue and insert songs (in fact they encourage it because they value accessibility), they do not allow even one single frame of animation to be altered or edited out. This is due to the ''Warriors of the Wind'' fiasco, when an American video company heavily censored ''Manga/{{Nausica|aOfTheValleyOfTheWind}}ä'' behind Miyazaki's back (more information about that can be found on the film's page). It became an issue after Creator/{{Disney}} signed a deal with Tokuma Shoten in 1996 that allowed Disney to distribute all but one of Ghibli's feature films.[[note]] ''Anime/GraveOfTheFireflies'' is the odd one out; it had already been licensed to Creator/CentralParkMedia… and given its [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII subject]] [[TearJerker matter]], Disney probably didn't want it anyway.[[/note]] They handed localization of ''Anime/PrincessMononoke'' off to Creator/{{Miramax|Films}}. [[Creator/TheWeinsteinCompany Harvey Weinstein]] immediately tried to pull an ''[[WesternAnimation/TheThiefAndTheCobbler Arabian Night]]'' on ''Mononoke'' in hopes of getting the movie re-rated PG. In response, Suzuki ([[UrbanLegend allegedly]]) sent him an authentic katana, attached to which was a note: [[IncrediblyLamePun "No cuts!"]]. On the one hand, this policy has allowed North America (where companies are notorious for censoring foreign things) to see these movies as they were meant to be seen; on the other hand, ''Mononoke'''s PG-13 rating almost certainly led to its being a BoxOfficeBomb and to Disney's subsequent refusal to allow ''Anime/OnlyYesterday'' any release at all. Still, Disney has for the most part done rather well by the rest of Ghibli's catalogue, which are often the top-selling anime in North America for any given year due to the studio's mainstream credibility.

New hope for the studio has been garnered when, in very late 2015, it was announced that Ghibli would be providing some of the animation for a new theatrical film titled ''The Red Turtle'', with plans for it to be released the September of 2016 in Japan. The film is notable for being a co-production between Ghibli and the European studio Wild Bunch. The director of the film is the Dutch-British animator Michael Dudok de Wit, who reportedly temporarily relocated to Japan to help complete the storyboards, while Isao Takahata will be the Artistic Producer.
