Ronia the Robber’s Daughter First Studio Ghibli TV Series. Ronia, the Robber’s Daughter / Sanzoku no Musume Ronja is being brought to Japanese television screens this summer. Ronia, the Robber’s Daughter is an adaptation of Astrid Lindgren‘s novel of the same name, which has already had a live-action adaptation directed by Tage Danielsson. The anime incarnation will be directed by Goro Miyazaki and will be a co-production between 3DCG Studio and Polygon Pictures.
On the plot of Ronia, the Robber’s Daughter:
Ronia lives with her father, a robber chieftain, and his band of men in their fortress on the top of a mountain. On the night Ronia was born, a bolt of lightning split the stronghold in two, leaving a huge chasm – Hell’s Gap – in between.
Soon Ronia is old enough to explore the forest around her, but she must beware of the grey dwarfs and wild harpies that live there. One day she meets Birk, the son of a rival robber leader who has claimed the other side of Hell’s Gap, and upon whom Ronia’s father instantly declares war.
Ronia and Birk develop a friendship that is as indestructible as the mountain fortress itself. But with their families sworn enemies they are forced to keep their friendship a secret until one fateful day when Ronia’s father catches Birk . . . prompting Ronia and Birk to escape into the woods and fend for themselves.
How long can Ronia and Birk survive in the magical forest? And will their fathers ever put aside their differences to get their beloved children back?
