Welcome to Moominvalley!

MOOMINVALLEY is a brand new adaptation of much loved work of Tove Jansson, a Finnish-Swedish writer and artist, whose books have been translated to over 50 languages. Directed to a family primetime audience, the drama fantasy series is full of life and laughter for lifelong Moomin fans, and complete newcomers alike.

The star of the show, curious and idealistic Moomintroll with his extraordinary family and whimsical friends take us to an adventure into the magical world of Moominvalley. Most of the episodes will centre on the Moominhouse and valley, an idyllic place entirely untouched by the modern world. Sometimes they will venture beyond the valley into the vast wilderness, huge dark forests, mysterious distant islands and lonely perilous mountains.

As we follow the story of Moomintroll’s growth and encounters with his family and other creatures, we learn more about our own humanity, relationships and emotions – and especially about love. Moominvalley is an uplifting series with many positive messages!
