The Moomins is being revived with Matt Berry among the voice cast.
The children’s classic will be back on our screens in 2019, with Matt playing Moominpappa and Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) as Moominmamma. Also among the cast are Richard Ayoade, Kate Winslet, Taron Egerton, Warwick Davis, Akiya Henry and Will Self.
Finnish production company Gutsy Animations are making the new series, based on the original books by author Tove Jansson. The new 19-part series, called Moominvalley, will reboot Jansson’s classic series of books using 3D animated characters and 2D backgrounds.
Funnily enough, Matt Berry isn’t the first Toast of London star to ever be linked to The Moomins, as Tracy-Ann Oberman (aka Mrs Purchase) was in Moomins on the Riviera back in 2014!
