Today, Netflix announced that one of the most beloved stories in Sweden, Astrid Lindgren’s world-famous story Ronja the Robber’s Daughter, is coming to Netflix in 2024.
The Swedish-language show is written by Hans Rosenfeldt and directed by Lisa James Larsson and follows the adventures of a young girl born into a band of robbers in a medieval Scandinavian fortress. As Ronja grows up, she learns that the surrounding forest can be a magical and sometimes dangerous place filled with strange creatures. But when Ronja befriends the young boy Birk from a rival band, a vicious family feud ignites. Ronja and Birk flee into the forest and try to survive on their own.
Hans Rosenfeldt says: “I’m thrilled that Ronja the Robber’s Daughter has found a new home. It has a fantastic team both in front- and behind the camera, and that Ronja will meet its audience on Netflix feels like an early Christmas present.”
Jenny Stjernströmer Björk, Vice President Nordic Content: “The rich heritage of Astrid Lindgren is an integral part of Sweden’s DNA. We hope the series will bring joy to our Nordic members, and we want to recognize and thank all the people who have been working on the project over the years. We look forward to welcoming Ronja the Robber’s Daughter to Netflix in 2024.”
Ronja the Robber’s Daughter will be released on Netflix in the Nordics, CEE, UK, France, Spain, and the Netherlands in 2024.
