Ronja, the Robber's Daughter - the tv-series

The classic Astrid Lindgren adventure about the strong and independent girl Ronja took the whole world by storm when the book was published over 40 years ago. In total, an incredible eleven million copies of the book have been sold globally. Now, as Netflix presents a TV series based on the book, viewers are given a deeper insight into Ronja's world.

The story remains the same but is embellished and adapted for today's audience with grand special effects, beautiful scenery, and more developed characters and settings.

Director Lisa James Larsson:

“So many of us have grown up with Ronja the Robber’s Daughter and we’re incredibly proud and grateful for the enormous commitment and effort everyone has put into this project. We auditioned more than 4000 actors to find the right Ronja, and have traveled to the most incredible places Sweden has to offer, from castles in Bohuslän via the deep forests of Dalarna to magnificent waterfalls in Jämtland to find the perfect locations for filming. Our series reflects the strong commitment and creative passion of our film crew and cast of over 200 people, and we’re so excited for it to launch soon on Netflix.”

About Netflix Ronja, the Robber's Daughter

Ronja the Robber’s Daughter follows the adventures of a spirited and rebellious girl born into a gang of robbers in a medieval Scandinavian castle. As Ronja grows up, she discovers the magical, but dangerous forest with its strange and mysterious creatures. Yet she feels more at home in the forest than behind the walls of the huge castle. When Ronja meets the young boy Birk from a rival gang, it marks the beginning of a dark family feud and a forbidden friendship emerges, all while a notorious bailiff arrives to rid the forest of robbers once and for all.
