Snorkmaiden does not change colour in the movie. As she is a Snork rather than a Moomin, she should be yellow, with her skin colour changing to reflect her emotions. See more »

Review from a big Moomin fan and a big 2D animation fan. I didn't like it.
15 October 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Beautiful backgrounds and colour design, but everything else was bad. I didn't like the movie much at all.

The script, voice acting and pacing/storytelling were especially bad. Also the character animation was mediocre and lifeless.

It desperately needed a proper English localisation & casting/voice direction, or just leave it in Finnish/Swedish with subs.The English voices were fairly weak, especially Moomin himself.

I thought the script was lazy and messy - the way they throw in Tove Jansson quotes/jokes with no context or the wrong context annoyed me so much. They didn't turn the material into a movie script at all.

Note: I'm a big Moomin fan AND very critical of animated movies so maybe other people would like it way more than me?

P.S You know what? If you're a Moomin fan, the movie -IS- worth seeing, for the opening titles with Snufkin alone.
