Tanoshii Moomin Ikka - Comet in Moominland (film) - Netflix
Comet in Moominland (Japanese: ムーミン谷の彗星, Hepburn: Mūmindani no Suisei) is an anime film by Telecable Benelux B.V.. The film is based on the novel of the same name by Finnish illustrator and writer Tove Jansson, originally published in Swedish. It was the first full-length Moomin film. It was released in Japan first theatrically in August 8, 1992 as a triple-feature with two unrelated shorter films and later released on video with 10 minutes of extra footage. It was never released for English, but has been dubbed to several European languages. It was the seventh most watched film in Finland in the season 1992/1993 with 166,738 viewers. As the original novel introduces many recurring characters who appear in later Moomin novels, the film similarly works as a prequel to the 1990 anime series Moomin. International version of the film features a new musical score composed by Pierre Kartner whereas the original, Japanese release of the film mainly recycles Sumio Shiratori's score from the anime series. Japanese version, however, has new opening and ending songs “Shiawase no morugaane” and “Kono uchuu he, tsutae tai”, both sung by Emiko Shiratori.
Tanoshii Moomin Ikka - Plot - Netflix
Before the film, Moomin's father had finished building Moomin House. During one rainy evening, the Muskrat suddendly appears on the front door for stay because his riverbank home's been destroyed by Moominpappa's bridge, built earlier that day. The next day, the rain's turned everything black and according to Muskrat, it is soot from outer space. He believes that a threat is coming from space and nothing can be done. Moominpappa gets an idea about the astronomical observatory in the Lonely Mountains, where a telescope can see far into space. The next morning, on their way, the trio meets Snufkin for the first time and he's heard about a comet which could crush to earth at any time, and joins the group. After that, they climb the steep mountains towards the observatory, while Moomin finds a golden anklet. Snufkin knows that the anklet belongs to the Snorkmaiden. They arrive at the observatory, where they find out the comet will be colliding in two days. On the way back to home, Moomin saves the Snorkmaiden from a giant carnivorous plant, and they immediately fall in love with each other. Both snorks join the group while they try to reach Moominvalley before the comet. Two days later, Moomin and friends meet Hemulen and when hurricane strikes them, they all fly to the Moominhouse with Snufkin's tent. Back home, they all decide to move to an cave Sniff found for shelter. Sniff is lost during the move when he sees a kitten and begins to follow it with a piece of cake. When there are only minutes left to the expected moment of the comet impact, Moomin and Snufkin find Sniff, who is paralysed from fear and they carry him into the cave in the last minute. The comet almost crashes the earth, but suddenly changes its course and turns away. Next morning, the sea returns and that cast celabrate on the beach, while Moomin gives Snorkmaiden an pearl he'd himself found at the same time.
