Los Angeles-based Global Genesis Group has sell to MOOMINS AND THE WINTER WONDERLAND, an upcoming stop-motion animation to Hong Kong’s Spring Era Films, starring Alicia Vikander, who will voice two of the lead characters (Little My and Sorry-oo).

Stellan Skarsgard will be executive producing and has also joined the cast. Based on the globally beloved Finnish storybook characters, the film is produced by Finish film company Filmkompaniet and Poland’s Animoon Sp.z o.o.

Created by Finnish writer Tove Jansson in a series of books and comic strips, originally published in Sweden in the 1940s. The iconic fairy tale characters– a carefree family of white, roundish creatures with large snouts that make them resemble lovable hippopotamuses– are a stable of kids culture around the world, thanks to the translations of the original books and comic strips, along with television and film adaptions and even a theme park called Moomin World in Naaantli, Finland. But this marks the first time the characters, in 87 year, hit the big screen.

Based on Jansson’s original books, the script is from Malgorzata Wieckowicz-Zyla, Piotr Szeczepanowics and Ira Carpelan.
