A few years ago, this came out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uBSq15VC5nc Holly fried beans, what is this kind of amateur project? Flat and bland movie, and cheap as if a bunch of kids would have done it. I remember this style in a Moomin adaption from my childhood and I thought is was bad already then. Now when they're were making a Moomin film, with some really great Scandinavian actors involved, why didn't they do something new and fresh, and really awesome looking stuff? The last decade's explosion of fantasy films seems to not have affected the Moomins at all. It's sad to see I would feel a lot of love in my heart if somebody could come with a modern take on the Moomins. We, as an audience, should be taken for a ride deep into the rich stories by Tove Jansson. I guess it could have a Narnia feel to it. Not too much slapstick, but not overly "Harry Potter dark" either. The right combination of wonder and lightness would work well. Should it be old-school animation, or "Tintin mo-cap"? Would stop-motion suit the Moomin valley? Or is live action the right way to go? I prefer the latter. The style will be more realistic then. The problem is to make the actors look like their characters. But I think several of the books could work as films. Just start the franchise with the origin story called Moomins and the Great Flood.
