3 Elements of Studio Ghibli Movies
3 important elements of Studio Ghibli movies are characters, music and settings.
Not only main characters but also all the characters are attractive and energetic.
Some are determined and hard-working, while others are quiet and independent.
As well as characters, music plays an imperative role on Studio Ghibli’s movies. In my opinion, music is one of the most important elements of any movies.
Sudio Ghibli have created gorgeous and exceptional pieces.
Their music takes you into the movie. When you hear the music, it would remind you of a certain movie. Music is such powerful and thus they create with passion.
Lastly, setting is one of features of Studio Ghibli movies.
Depends on movies, they use different settings.
Sometimes it is in modern Japan, while other times it is in ancient Japan.
It might be an imaginary country or somewhere in Europe.
