A number of actors have been confirmed to join the cast of upcoming animated series, Moominvalley.

Brought to life by Finnish production firm, Gutsy Animations, the likes of Matt Berry, Will Self and Kate Winslet will take on the role of the iconic Moomin characters. "They will speak to audiences young and old and for the family drama that we are creating, which doesn't shy away from the depth and complexities of Jansson's original work".

Tove Jansson's much-loved creation, the Moomins, are one of Finland's most significant cultural exports with the original books having been translated into more than 50 languages. "They couldn't be a more talented or suitable line up".

Moominvalley is a hybrid animation series combining 3D rendered characters in a painterly environment featuring 2D elements. Two series of thirteen 22 minute episodes are now confirmed, with the first slated for a Spring 2019 release. Steve Box, formerly of Aardman and an Oscar victor for co-directing Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit with Nick Park, will helm. Classical violinist Pekka Kuusisto and percussionist Samuli Kosminen, both from Finland, are creating the music for the series.

It is being developed in association with Finnish public broadcaster, Yle Drama, with the support of Moomin Characters, the business set up by Jansson and her brother Lars to manage the Moomin brand.

Sophia Jansson, who is Tove's niece, said: 'Tove gave the inhabitants of Moominvalley the values of tolerance, love, respect, friendship and bravery - which are needed in today's world more than ever. "We're very excited to have a wonderful cast and team who share these values bringing Moomin to life in a new way for fans young and old".

Tom McLean has been writing for years about animation from a secret base in Los Angeles.
