Out This Month: Studio Ghibli, 'Abominable,' 'Millennium Actress' and More

So here we are. The last round-up of new animated releases for 2019. AFA will be on a reduced schedule over the festive period and into New Year, so we're rounding up all the remaining releases for the year.

The number of releases always goes down at this time, but there's still some doozies here, including a deluxe edition of Kiki's Delivery Service (for the UK), Satoshi Kon's Millenium Actress in HD for the first time and DreamWork's Abominable (both US). Plus the first ever digital release for Studio Ghibli's catalogue (or most of it) in the US and Canada. Have a fantastic festive period and we'll be back in 2020!
