Pippi Longstocking Film in Works From StudioCanal, Heyday Films


Recommended Posts




StudioCanal and David Heyman's Heyday Films, which together produced the hugely successful features Paddington and Paddington 2, are reuniting for another iconic children's figure. 


The two have teamed with the Astrid Lindgren Company on a feature based on Pippi Longstocking, the famously super-strong, energetic and kind girl with the red pigtails. 


First seen in print in 1945 and based on bedside stories Swedish author Astrid Lindgren would tell her daughter, Pippi Longstocking books have since been translated into 77 languages with more than 65 million copies sold worldwide. There have already been several TV and film adaptations.


Recently, Michelle Obama cited Pippi Longstocking as the first book love of her life, telling Today that she was "really fascinated with this strong little girl that was the center of everything."
