Moominvalley is an upcoming Finnish-British animated children's television series, produced by Gutsy Animations. It premiered on January 25, 2019. A crowdfunded campaign was made on Indiegogo from 8 March to 21 April 2017.
The protagonist of the series is Moomintroll, who is curious, kind, sensitive and idealistic. He is a typical hero in a coming-of-age story: he tries to tackle the puzzle of growing up to his true, individualistic self while remaining a beloved part of the family.
