Moomin - New TV show being planned for 2019
The new series – being created by Gutsy Animations – will use state of the art CGI technology combined with more traditional hand-drawn techniques.
Each episode is based on an original storyline or incident from the novels and comic strips.
The new series is due to premiere in 2019, starting with 13 episodes.
It is being directed by Oscar winner Steve Box (Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit) and produced by BAFTA award winner John Woolley, who spent a number of years at Aardman Studios.
Emmy winning and BAFTA nominated writing partners, Nick Ostler and Mark Huckerby (Peter Rabbit, Danger Mouse, Shaun the Sheep), are writing the series, while Marika Makaroff is executive producer and creative director.
