Matt Lucas joins Moominvalley

Matt Lucas has joined the cast of Moominvalley, an upcoming Sky1 animated series based on the beloved stories of Finnish-Swedish artist Tove Jansson.

Lucas will lend his vocal talents to Teety-Woo.

The series, a reboot of a 1970s stop-motion animation, will follow the adventures of a family of white, hippopotamus-like beings known as Moomins.

Moominvalley has already been commissioned for two seasons consisting of 13 22-minute-long episodes each, and is slated to debut in spring 2019.
