We have an absolutely charming film to share with one lucky winner, as the long-awaited North American DVD release of Moomins and the Comet Chase has arrived, courtesy of Vision Films (in conjunction with Global 3 Media). This family friendly puppet-animated adventure recycles elements of the classic TV series produced by Se-ma-for to bring to life once again the classic characters created by Tove Jansson.
Produced by Filmkompaniet, Filmoteka Narodowa, Jupiter Film and Moomin Characters, Moomins and the Comet Chase sends Moomintroll (voiced by Alexander Skarsgård), Moominpappa (Stellan Skarsgård) and some of their concerned neighbors on a journey to the observatory to find out why everything in their valley is covered in thick, grey dust as the sky gets redder every day. They discover a comet is heading straight for them, and it’s a race against time to get everyone back to the safety of Moominhouse!
The voice cast also features Max von Sydow, Mads Mikkelsen, Peter Stormare and Helena Mattsson, with original music composed and performed by Bjork. Moomins and the Comet Chase was written by Joel Backström, Iivo Baric, Minna Karvonen and Anders Larsson and directed by Maria Lindberg.
