The story is based on the novel of the same name by Finnish illustrator and writer Tove Jansson.
The original Comet in Moominland (Japanese-Finnish-Dutch production from 1992) was created and produced by Dennis Livson, whose son Tim Livson (Kindernet Entertainment), has now co-produced the new film with Cinematic Animation. While keeping the classical hand drawn cel animation style by director Hiroshi Saito, animator Yasuhiro Nakura and writer Akira Miyazaki, the remastered Comet in Moominland (2020) is updated for today’s 4K cinema standards, with new music, songs and dubbing.
A comet is going to hit earth and Moomintroll and Sniff have to go to the observatory on the lonely mountains to find out when. On the way they have many adventures, and meet other memorable characters like the Snorks, Snufkin and Hemulen.
