“Ronia The Robber’s Daughter” Will Be The First Studio Ghibli Animated Series

G Upload

“Ronia the Robber’s Daughter,” based on a story by the beloved Swedish Author Astrid Lindgren (Pippi Longstocking anyone?), will be the first series produced by Studio Ghibli, from nerd approved

The show, which will debut in Japan this fall, will be directed by Hayao Miyazaki’s son Goro who says:

Ronia the Robber’s Daughter is a story not just about a girl who grows into adulthood, but it is also a story about the love and growth between a parent and a child, and a story about the bonds between friends. My goal is to create a work that everyone, from children to adults, will be able to enjoy.

The original story by Lindgren, titled Ronja Rövardotter, was published back in 1981 and tells the tale of Ronia who is the daughter of the chief of a band of robbers. She’s destined to someday inherit her father’s position.

On the day of her birth, the robber’s castle home was split in two by a lightning bolt. In the years between then and the beginning of the story, the other half of the castle has been taken over by a rival clan. Ronia meets and befriends the only son of the rival band’s chief, goes on many fantasy adventures with him, and eventually heals the rift between the two groups.

And if you’re thinking the name Astrid Lindgren sounds familiar, you might better know her as the author of the Pippi Longstocking series.
