Storyline

One day Moomintroll notices that something strange has happened in the Moomin Valley - everything is grey; not just the sky and the river, but the trees, the ground, the Moominhouse, too! Moomintroll runs to ask the well-read Muskrat if he knows what is happening. Muskrat declares that this is the way things tend to look like before the earth faces an awful fate coming from the sky... With the help of his father, Moominpappa, Moomintroll and his worried friends build the best raft ever and start on a challenging journey to the observatory. The wise professors there must know what the threat from space is all about! The trek is not easy. The brave entourage, Moomintroll, Sniff and Snufkin face many obstacles, yet also meet new and old friends. But they make it to the observatory: the professor calculates that a ferocious comet will reach the Earth in four days, four hours, four minutes and 44 seconds. Maybe 4 seconds later. It's time to go back home as fast as they can - surviving an ... Written by Filmkompaniet

Goofs

In the opening credits of the Finnish language version, Tove Jansson's original novel is misspelled as "Komeetta ja pyrstötähti". "Komeetta" and "pyrstötähti" are synonyms, both meaning "comet" in Finnish - so the nonsensically misspelled title would translate as "The Comet and the Comet". The novel's correct Finnish title is "Muumipeikko ja pyrstötähti" (Moomintroll and the Comet). See more »

Dark story about the Moomins trying to see if a comet will destroy the world
15 February 2011 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

(contains spoilers) The film is an animated film done in a mixed media style, There are paper cut out characters, some made of cloth and other things.

The story has Mr Muskrat telling the young Moomin that a comet is going to hit the earth and kill everyone. His father and mother send him on a river trip to an observatory to talk to the astronomers who hopefully will tell him everything will be okay. Well after many adventures they get to the observatory they find out the comet is coming so they head home so they can be here when it hits. On the way back they see some of the devastation the comet is causing, the sea has dried up, and the locusts are swarming. Will they make it home in time? The film is probably darker than it sounds.

It also just sort of stops. The danger is done, roll end credits.

I liked the voice cast which includes Max Von Sydow as the narrator(who wouldn't want him to read you a story), Stellan Skarsgard and Mads Mikkelsen. They manage to make it all okay even when you think about it it's really not.

I'm told this is based on one of the earlier Moomins stories so it's not as moody as some of the later ones. If this isn't moody I don't know what is.

Realesaed in 3D I'm not really sure why. Yes it's nice to see the layers of the animated material, but at the same time the film doesn't scream out 3D.
