The show is being created by an outstanding team, including Oscar®-winning director Steve Box (‘Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit’) and creative director Marika Makaroff.
“With their beguiling adventures, magical setting and a cast of fantastical creatures, Tove Jansson’s beautiful books have been a well-deserved family favourite for decades and we can’t wait to bring the joyous Moomin world to Sky families in this fabulous new series,” adds Lucy Murphy, head of kids content, Sky.
