Some Finn’s gotten hold of my heart
Almost 75 years after the adventures of the Moomins first appeared in Finnish author and illustrator Tove Jansson’s The moomins and the Great Flood (1945), the hippopotamus-like creatures have captured the hearts of millions. But after numerous television series and some very odd films, we think it’s fair to say the Moomins haven’t really found their true home in the 21st century.
Now that’s all about to change as the charming computer-animated series Moominvalley comes to Blu-ray, DVD, and digital download, featuring the all-star voice talents of Taron Egerton, Matt Berry, Rosamund Pike, Kate Winslet, Will Self, Warwick Davis, Richard Ayoade, Akiya Henry and Jennifer Saunders. The hit series follows the curious and idealistic Moomintroll with his extraordinary family and whimsical friends, as they take us on an adventure into the magical world of Moominvalley, where we can learn more about our own humanity, relationships and emotions and especially about love.
All 13 episodes are available from November 4th. Get a taste of the new Moomins here.
