"Ronja The Robber's Daugther" is the new Studio Ghibli animated series coming to small screen this fall. The anime co-produced by Studio Ghibli is set to release on Amazon Prime's streaming service with Gillian Anderson among the voice cast.

According to Comicbook.com, Ronja is described as an "epic 26-part animated story of a strong, adventurous young girl who grows up exploring a beautiful and dangerous forest filled with mystical creatures," as written on the official press release on Amazon's site.

Here's the full show description, as published on Comicbook.com:

"The Emmy Award-winning Ronja The Robber's Daughter is an adaptation of the wildly popular children's fantasy book of the same name by noted Swedish author Astrid Lindgren (Pippi Longstocking). The series is directed by Gorō Miyazaki and presented by the Academy Award-winning Studio Ghibli (Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle) and Saltkrakan (the Astrid Lindgren Company)."

"Ronja The Robber's Daughter is narrated by Golden Globe Award-winning actress Gillian Anderson (The X-Files); an epic 26-part animated story of a strong, adventurous young girl who grows up exploring a beautiful and dangerous forest filled with mythical creatures."

"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. Ronja struggles to balance the relationship with her family and the bond with her self-proclaimed brother Birk as she comes to understand the intricate issues of family and friendship and how differences can be overcome with the help of love and understanding."

There's a long history between Studio Ghibli and the Swedish author Astrid Lingren. Back in 70's, Ghibli founders attempted to convice the Swedish author on selling them the rights. Unfortunately, they haven't reached the peak of their popularity at that time, and was turned down, as reported by Den of Geek.
