Entertainment news source The Hollywood Reporter reported on Thursday that Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli's My Neighbor Totoro anime film will be the first film from Studio Ghibli to get a theatrical release in China. The release is planned near the end of this year, and will feature a Chinese dub. Studio Ghibli plans to release other films in China if the My Neighbor Totoro release is successful.

This year, the film is celebrating the 30th anniversary of its release in Japan in 1988.

GKIDS and Fathom Events screened the film in the United States in June 2017. GKIDS also licensed the film and released it on Blu-ray Disc and DVD in North America in October 2017.

Walt Disney Pictures previously released My Neighbor Totoro on Blu-ray Disc and DVD in North America in May 2013.
