Get reacquainted with the fairytale folk of Moomin Valley in our special competition of Moomins on the Riviera
Inspired by the original animations from the late Tove Jansson, Moomins on the Riviera reunites us with old friends of the Moomin family including Moominpappa, Moominmamma, Snorkmaiden and Little My. Instead of the familiar backdrop of Moominland and the picturesque backdrop of the sweeping valley, the eccentric assemblage embark on a dangerous journey. Across sea and land; battling the stormy seas and traversing desert islands, the clan overcome obstacles only to face a rollercoaster of emotions on the Riviera.
We may remember the Swedish, Finnish and Japanese television production that ran from 1990-1991. However, the quirky shenanigans of the troupe have been in print since 1945. The success of the animated franchise can be seen in the artist’s homeland. The Moomin World theme park can be found on the island of Kailo in Western Finland and the Tampere Art Museum, which has thousands of works of art on display by Jansson, commemorates the great Nordic creation that has reached international appeal.
We are giving away a copy of Moomins on the Riviera on DVD with an exclusive soft toy for ten lucky winners. To enter our colourful competition, simply answer the following question correctly:
In the 2010 premiere Nordic 3D animated feature Moomins and the Great Comet Chase, which Scandinavian singer lent her innovative vocal talents to the soundtrack?
- Lykke Li
- Oh Land
