Everybody in Sweden knows the story about “Ronia the Robber’s Daughter” (Ronja Rövardotter) and now it’s going to be an anime, directed by Goro Miyazaki (Tales from Earthsea, From Up On Poppy Hill). That must excite a lot of Swedes and other nationalities that love the work of Astrid Lindgren.
“Ronia the Robber’s daughter is a story not just about a girl who grows into adulthood, but it is also a story about the love and growth between a parent and a child, and a story about the bonds between friends. My goal is to create a work that everyone, from children to adults, will be able to enjoy.”
Other work by Astrid Lindgren that you might know about:
Pippi Longstocking (Pippi långstrump)
Karlsson-on-the-Roof (Karlsson på taket)
Children of Noisy Village (Barnen på bråkmakargatan)
Thanks for the tip, Jessica!
