The series is described as “an epic 26-part story of 10-year-old Ronja, born on a stormy night in a mountain fort, surrounded by her father, mother and a loving band of robbers… She befriends Birk, the son of her father’s rival, and so begins the drama of her friendship and family loyalties.”

“With Ronja, the Robber’s Daughter, Astrid Lindgren seems to be telling children to believe in their own power to grow, whilst telling adults to learn more from children,” said director Gorō Miyazaki. “Mutual respect will attain freedom in the true sense of the word.”

Amazon Prime customers will be able to view the series online at www.amazon.com/originals or via a range of compatible devices.
