English Cast Set for ‘Moomins on the Riviera’

Moomins-on-the-Riviera-150

The English dub cast has been set for the animated feature Moomins on the Riviera.

Based on the comic strips by Tove Jansson, Moomins on the Riviera takes the Moomin family from their beloved Moominvalley to the glamorous Riviera, where Moominpappa befriends an aristocrat and adopts the name “de Moomin”; Snorkmaiden is dazzled by the attentions of a playboy; and Moomin learns that jealousy’s sting is the most painful of all as, for the very first time, the unity of the Moomins is threatened.

Here’s the trailer:

Award winning British actor Russell Tovey (The Pirates! Band of Misfits, Grabbers, Being Human, Him and Her) plays Moomin; Nathaniel Parker (Merlin, Stardust, The Haunted Mansion, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader) and Tracy Ann Oberman (EastEnders, Filth) play Moominpappa and Moominmamma respectively; Stephanie Winiecki, in her first major movie role, plays Snorkmaiden; the irrepressible Little My is played by Ruth Gibson; Philippe Smolikowski is Moominpappa’s new best friend, the wannabe artist, Marquis Mongaga; Dave Browne plays the upper-crust playboy Clark Tresco, who sets his sights on Snorkmaiden; and Shelley Blond (Tomb Raider video game, Cruise of Gods) plays Audrey Glamour, the Hollywood actress, idolized by Snorkmaiden.

The feature is directed by Xavier Picard and produced by Hanna Hemilä and will be released in October, first with a theatrical release throughout the Nordic region.

    I gotta say, the classic animated series looks way better, very disappointing quality for a “feature film” and a well known name like The Moomins.
