Studio Ghibli ‘Ronia The Robber’s Daughter’ Coming To Amazon Prime
Studio Ghibli has signed an agreement with Amazon to air the children's animated TV series, “Ronia The Robber’s Daughter”, which will be English-dubbed, through an online streaming platform.
Studio Ghibli has created many of the classical and beloved Japanese animated films people have grown fond of such as “Grave of the Fireflies”, “My Neighbor Totoro”, “Spirited Away”, “Howl’s Moving Castle”, and “Ponyo” to name a few. In 2014, they created and produced their first Japanese animated series titled “Sanzoku no Musume Ronya”. They partnered up with Polygon Pictures for the CGI animation of the said series. The children’s animated series was received well and even won two television awards in 2015 and 2016.
Then just recently, they have announced that “Sanzoku no Musume Ronya” also known as “Ronia The Robber’s Daughter” will be released on Amazon Prime despite its average reception especially from Studio Ghibli fans as they have commented that the series was mediocre compared to the previous titles the said studio has delivered. The said series will air on Amazon Prime English-dubbed and will be narrated by Gillian Anderson. It will be available to those who has access to Amazon Prime. Along with that, Serious Lunch, a UK-based distributor, has also acquired the rights for worldwide distribution except in Japan and Scandinavia.
Directed by Goro Miyazaki, he said “'Ronia The Robber’s Daughter' is a story not just about a girl who grows into adulthood, but it is also a story about the love and growth between a parent and a child, and a story about the bonds between friends. My goal is to create a work that everyone, from children to adults, will be able to enjoy.”
“Ronia The Robber’s Daughter”, somehow interchangeably referred to as “Ronja The Robber’s Daughter”, is based on the children fantasy book of the same title written by Swedish author Astrid Lindgren and was first published in 1981. The children’s animated television series adaptation, on the other hand, made its TV debut on Oct. 11,2014 on Japanese channel, NHK BS Premium. “Ronia The Robber’s Daughter” series had 26 episodes and aired until March 28, 2015.
