The UK poster and trailer have been released for Moomins on the Riviera.
Featuring the voice talents of Russell Tovey, Nathaniel Parker, Tracy Ann Oberman, Stephanie Winiecki and Ruth Gibson, the big screen adventure is directed by Xavier Picard.
In search of adventures, the Moomins, Snorkmaiden and Little My set sail for the French Riviera. After a perilous journey, they reach their dream destination where Snorkmaiden is dazzled by the attentions of a playboy leaving Moomin consumed by jealousy. When Moominpappa befriends an aristocrat and adopts the name ‘de Moomin’, an exasperated Moominmamma retreats to the calm of their trusty old boat, to wait for her family to come to their senses and to remember their motto: “Live in peace, plant potatoes and dream.”
Moomins on the Riviera was created in a unique hand-drawn animation technique inspired by and based on Tove Jansson’s original comic strips. The feature celebrates the beloved characters in their original context and reflects their cross-generational and universal appeal, even 100 years after the birth of their creator, Jansson.
Moomins on the Riviera will be released on 22nd May 2015. Take a look at the new poster below:
