English Cast set for ‘Moomins on the Riviera’

The English dub cast has been set for the an­i­mated fea­ture Moomins on the Riviera.

Based on the comic strips by Tove Jans­son, Moomins on the Riviera takes the Moomin fam­ily from their beloved Moom­in­val­ley to the glam­orous Riviera, where Moom­in­pappa be­friends an aris­to­crat and adopts the name “de Moomin”; Snork­maiden is daz­zled by the at­ten­tions of a play­boy; and Moomin learns that jeal­ousy’s sting is the most painful of all as, for the very first time, the unity of the Moomins is threat­ened.

Award win­ning Bri­tish ac­tor Rus­sell Tovey ( The Pi­rates! Band of Mis­fits, Grab­bers, Be­ing Hu­man, Him and Her) plays Moomin; Nathaniel Parker ( Mer­lin, Star­dust, The Haunted Man­sion, The Chron­i­cles of Nar­nia: The Voy­age of the Dawn Treader) and Tracy Ann Ober­man ( EastEn­ders, Filth) play Moom­in­pappa and Moom­in­mamma re­spec­tively; Stephanie Winiecki, in her first ma­jor movie role, plays Snork­maiden; the ir­re­press­ible Lit­tle My is played by Ruth Gib­son; Philippe Smo­likowski is Moom­in­pappa’s new best friend, the wannabe artist, Mar­quis Mon­gaga; Dave Browne plays the up­per-crust play­boy Clark Tresco, who sets his sights on Snork­maiden; and Shel­ley Blond ( Tomb Raider video game, Cruise of Gods) plays Au­drey Glam­our, the Hol­ly­wood ac­tress, idol­ized by Snork­maiden.

The fea­ture is di­rected by Xavier Pi­card and pro­duced by Hanna Hemilä and will be re­leased in Oc­to­ber, first with a the­atri­cal re­lease through­out the Nordic re­gion.
