BTW, a Finnish animation studio is creating a new series of The Moomins, and is running an Indiegogo campaign to fund the visual development. They're working with Tove Jansson's niece.

I am surprised that this is going to Indiegogo for funding, because this is a valuable property. The Japanese series were very popular and that merchandising is ongoing and I'm puzzled as to why they'd crowdfund. Is this just a way of creating buzz while getting some quick operating cash?

And, looking over the premiums---if you want to see the Moomins' Finland, you go in the summertime!
