Finland/U.K., 2019, 44 min, 2K DCP, Dir. Steve Box, Recommended for ages 5 and up, in English
They may hail from faraway Finland, but artist/novelist Tove Jansson’s cuddly, quasi-philosophical, not-quite-hippo creatures have a huge international following! This exciting new series uses brand new innovative techniques in 3D CGI to bring the Moomintroll family to vivid life as they adventure through the mystical islets and fjords of their glacial world. Rosamund Pike leads a top-notch voice cast (Kate Winslet, Taron Egerton, Richard Ayoade, and Matt Berry) as Moominmamma, wisely grounding the family’s insatiable curiosity as they seek the shadowy Groke and luminescent Hattifatteners. Recommended ages: 5+
