Ronja the Robber’s Daughter (2016)
Amazon has ordered a new kids series narrated by Gillian Anderson, “Ronja the Robber’s Daughter.”
Based on Swedish author Astrid Lindgren’s fantasy book series of the same name, “Ronja” will be a 26-part series that follows the young daughter of a professional thief as she grows up, exploring the enchanted forest nearby and befriending members of a rival tribe.
Gorō Miyazaki, son of Studio Ghibli co-founder Hayao Miyazaki, is directing the series, which will premiere later this fall and is presented by beloved animation shop Studio Ghibli and Lindgren’s Saltkrakan. Studio Ghibli gave the world animated classics like “Spirited Away” and “My Neighbor Totoro.”
