The Moomins are set to hit cinema screens across the UK in May 2015, as Rupert Preston of distribution powerhouse Vertigo has picked up MOOMINS ON THE RIVIERA.
The hand-drawn 2D animated film debuted at the BFI London Film Festival earlier this month to delighted audiences, and is already a box office smash in Finland, where production company Handle Productions is based. Leslie Stewart worked on the script, along with creative team Sophia Jansson, who is the niece of Moomins creator Tove Jansson, and Finnish producer Hanna Hemila (LE HAVRE).
