The swedish tale “Ronia the Robber’s Daughter” goes anime!

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.

Goro Miyazaki:
“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!

Welcome! This is not an actual news site but a personal blog, run by an ordinary person who loves visual kei. This is my space where I ventilate thoughts and values and shares happenings within the scene. My goal is to make information easy to access and to support artists and movements that I admire. Especially smaller bands that need an extra push in the djungle of major bands. English is not my native tounge so please condone my linguistic mistakes.
