Finland | 75 min | PG | DVD | Dir. Maria Lindberg
Moomintroll and his friends rush to save everyone in Moomin Valley from a ferocious comet. Moomins are the central characters in a series of books, a comic strip, and now movies, created by Finnish illustrator Tove Jansson, originally published in Swedish in Finland.
"Moomins and the Comet Chase is a fun film for people of all ages. It is well edited arc from a popular series, has a great voice cast, notably Alexander Skarsgård, Mads Mikkelsen, and Peter Stormare, who go against type and sound like they are having fun as the trio of adventurers, and is all out fun in terms of its classic stop-motion animation. Definitely a family film worth seeing." -worldfilmgeek.com
