ronja-the-robbers-daughter-post1-620x874Serious Lunch has secured a raft of deals for the enchanting family adventure series Ronja, the Robber’s Daughter across multiple territories and platforms. Based on the book by Astrid Lindgren and directed by Goro Miyazaki, Ronja was produced by NHK, NHK Enterprises and Dwango in collaboration with Studio Ghibli and Saltkråkan, The Astrid Lindgren Co., with animation by Polygon Pictures.

 

An English language version of the 26-episode title is in production in London (narrated by Gillian Anderson and starring Teresa Gallagher as Ronja), to launch on Amazon Prime Video in the US and UK this fall.

 

The show has also been picked up by Universum in Germany, which will release four Blu-ray volumes in the run up to Christmas and hold a promotional cinema release. International broadcasters now onboard include Yowu (Spain), VRT (Belgium), Canal Once (Mexico) and Jeem TV (Middle East).

 

Serious Lunch will be focused on meeting with partners for US home video and broadcast in Germany, France and Italy during the MIP markets in Cannes. Ronja has achieved critical acclaim (winning the Kids Emmy for Best Animation at MIPTV ‘16) and strong ratings on NHK BS, NHK Educational TV and SVT’s Barnkanalen. A global publishing and merchandising program is being launched.

 

Synopsis: The story of a 10-year-old girl born on a stormy night in a mountain fort, surrounded by her parents and a loving band of robbers. She grows to be a strong and active girl, and discovers that the forest is both a beautiful and frightening place inhabited by strange creatures. She befriends the son of her father’s rival and so begins the drama of her friendship and family loyalties. We watch as she explores and understands these key factors in her life, and discovers that seemingly irresolvable choices can finally be made with the help of love and understanding.

Cool to see this is getting a dub. Shame it sounds like it may be Amazon streaming exclusive. Would have liked to see a Blu-ray, but perhaps that is in the works as well. The show seems to have been overlooked mostly when it aired in Japan, heck no one even bothered to do a Japanese Blu-ray fansub.

The first trailer for the English adaptation of Ronja, the Robber’s Daughter, Studio Ghibli’s TV series from 2014, has finally arrived.

Directed by Ghibli's Goro Miyazaki, son of acclaimed director Hayao Miyazaki, the seriesfollows the 10-year-old Ronja and her family of thieves. As Ronja gets older, she befriends a boy named Birk, who just so happens to be the son of her father’s rival. As tensions flare, Ronja believes she must choose between family loyalty and her newfound friendship. The 26-part series is based on Swedish author Astrid Lindgren’s children’s novel of the same name, which has sold more than 10 million copies worldwide since it was first released in 1981.

Ghibli’s original series was well received by both critics and fans, with Ronja winning an International Emmy Award for Best Kids Animation in 2015. Ronja was one of the first projects that Goro Miyazaki worked on following his father’s retirement announcement. As a result of Miyazaki’s retirement, Studio Ghibli confirmed it would no longer be producingfeature-length films. Last year, however, Hayao Miyazaki said he was working on a new project, and if the film got the financial investment he needed to complete it, the movie would be produced in-house by Ghibli’s team.

Amazon announced that it would be adapting Ronja last October, making it available to Prime Video and Amazon Prime subscribers. The show will premiere on Jan. 27 in both the US and the UK.

      Requesting Ghibli films.
      I've been looking around and most of the Ghibli titles I've found (on here and other places) are either low quality or have ridiculous file sizes. So, anyone care to share a link?
       
      I'm looking for any HD quality--UNDER 6-7gb with dual-audio (multi is fine) and subtitles.
      Mega is preferred. No torrents please!
       
      So far I have:
      Spirited Away
      Kiki's Delivery Service
       
      Thanks beforehand!
