Studio Ghibli, known for the works of Hayao Miyazaki, launched their first TV series, Ronja the Robber's Daughter, back in 2014 with 26 episodes. Amazon is bringing the English dubbed official version to Western markets via Amazon Video in the US, the UK, Germany, Austria, and Japan.

Gillian Andserson, of The X-Files fame, is part of the voice cast. Anderson previously worked on Princess Mononoke, a Ghibli fan favorite.

The animation style is a little bit different in that it is 3D rendered instead of the 2D animation style most of the studio's works have been done in.

The story is adapted from Swedish author Astrid Lindgren and directed by Goro Miyazaki, son of Hayao. No release date has been scheduled yet.
