Studio Ghibli and Ronja, The Robber’s Daughter

Oh, the joy ! Amazon Prime members will be able to watch a new Studio Ghibli release. 

Amazon Prime memberships are in for a treat — the acclaimed Japanese studio has made a television series, and it’s coming to the service on January 27.

The 26-episode show, “Ronja, The Robber’s Daughter” is based on a book by “Pippi Longstocking” author Astrid Lindgren, and the series is narrated by “X-Files” star Gillian Anderson. The series ran in Japan in 2014.

“The daughter of a professional robber, Ronja realizes the complicated nature of her father’s profession when she befriends Birk, the child of a rival tribe,” the show’s description reads. “She struggles to balance this friendship with her family relationship but comes to understand how differences can be overcome with the help of love and understanding.”
