Join the Moomins and friends old and new as they leave Moominvalley behind and head south in MOOMINS ON THE RIVIERA, which opens in cinemas nationwide through Vertigo on 22 May. 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 a 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.”

Directed by Xavier Picard and produced by Hanna Hemilä, 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.
