The ending of the film references the final Moomin book, Moominvalley In November. Published in 1970, this was the only one of the books in which the Moomins did not actually appear. In the final pages the central character Toft sights the Moomins' boat far out to see, finally on its way home. In the film this scene is played out with Snufkin taking the role of Toft but the Moomins are seen to return home, finally giving closure to fans who had waited 44 years for their safe return.

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 »
The movie is so bad I reactivated my IMDb account just to write this review.
I suppose this film is for serious Moomins fans. The only positive thing I can say is the colour and painting are beautiful.
The story is not even continuous. The voice acting is worse than that of kids TV. I was of high anticipation of the film, and I really wanted to care for these characters, but half way through the movie I just gave up. These characters are too bohemian for my liking, and too forgiving for everything just to pick up the pace of the movie.
So in conclusion, I hate this film.
