Amazon Original Kids Series "Ronja, the Robber's Daughter" is Now Available to Stream on Prime Video in the US and UK
All 26 episodes of Amazon Original Kids Series Ronja, the Robber's Daughter are now available on Prime Video. An animated adventure for kids and families, the new series is narrated by Golden Globe Award-winning actress Gillian Anderson (The X-Files), directed by Goro Miyazaki (Up on Poppy Hill, Tales from Earthsea), and presented by the Academy Award-winning Studio Ghibli (Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle) and Saltkråkan (the Astrid Lindgren Company). Ronja, the Robber's Daughter is already a full-fledged hit in Japan, winning the International Emmy Award for Best Kids Animation. The series is based on the wildly-popular children's fantasy book of the same name by noted Swedish author Astrid Lindgren (Pippi Longstocking), which has sold approximately 10 million copies worldwide since its release in 1981, and been translated into 41 languages and adapted for film and television internationally.
Ronja, the Robber's Daughter is an epic 26-part story of 10-year-old Ronja (Teresa Gallagher, Thunderbirds Are Go), born on a stormy night in a mountain fort, surrounded by her father (Rufus Hound, Argumental), mother (Morwenna Banks, Peppa Pig) and a loving band of robbers. She grows to be a strong girl, and discovers that the forest is both a beautiful and frightening place inhabited by strange creatures. She befriends Birk (Kelly Adams, Mr Selfridge), the son of her father's rival, and so begins the drama of her friendship and family loyalties. Viewers follow along 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.
