Tags from the story: .

Gold Valley Films and Toonz Media Group has announced that an adaptation of Scandinavia’s beloved children’s classic, “The Wonderful Adventures of Nils,” is coming to the big screen as an animated picture for the first time.

NILS: THE NEW ADVENTURE is based on the book by Selma Lagerlöf, the first female writer to ever win the Nobel Prize in Literature. Jason Reisig, co-director of Warner Bros’ SMALLFOOT ($214 Million Worldwide Box Office), is a director on the film.

When a misunderstood boy is shrunk to mini size by a vengeful pixie, he must team up with a bumbling goose on the journey of a lifetime to change himself back. Will he “grow up” in time?

NILS: THE NEW ADVENTURE is part of the six animated picture co-financing and co-producing deal between Toonz Media Group and Gold Valley Films. The first two pictures announced by the two studios as part of the deal are LITTLE EMMA which is having its world premiere screenings at the Cannes Film Market, and PIERRE THE PIGEON-HAWK from producer-director John D. Eraklis’ Exodus Film Group.

Additionally, longtime Toonz executive Gulshan David is joining Toonz’ feature film division as Vice President, International Distribution and Sales, reporting to Ariel Veneziano, President of Feature Film at Toonz Media Group.
