Paddington Producers Bringing Pippi Longstocking Back to the Big Screen

One of my favorite movies as a kid was the 1988 movie The New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking. My mom recorded the movie onto a VHS tape for me, and I watched it repeatedly and imagined marching through the town raiding an ice cream stand with my friends and singing the theme song incessantly. So I was pretty excited to hear that we are getting a new Pippi Longstocking movie for the next generation.

Studio Canal and producer David Heyman, known for his work on the Harry Potter films, the Paddington films, and Gravity, are on board to make the film based on the children’s book by Swedish author Astrid Lindgren.

Variety reports the following preliminary description for the project:

Longstocking, with her iconic red hair, freckles, strength and free spirit, is the main character in an eponymous series of children’s books by legendary Swedish author Lindgren. Pippi is

Paddington Team Working on New Pippi Longstocking Movie

Kirsten Howard Oct 2, 2019

Studiocanal and David Heyman are working on a new Pippi Longstocking movie.

Paddington producer David Heyman is once again teaming up with Studiocanal, this time to work on a new Pippi Longstocking feature film, according to Deadline. They're partnering with the Astrid Lindgren Company on the project, which will see the flame-haired girl bounce back into cinemas for a brand-new adventure.

Astrid Lindren wrote the original Pippi Longstocking books in the 1940s, and if you're of a certain age, you may remember that the last notable Pippi big screen offering, The New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking, arrived all the way back in 1988. The film was directed by Ken Annakin (The Longest Day) and fared poorly with critics and audiences alike, bombing at the box office when it was released.

‘Paddington’ Duo Studiocanal & Heyday Team With The Astrid Lindgren Company On Pippi Longstocking Movie
Paddington duo Studiocanal and David Heyman are teaming with the Astrid Lindgren Company to develop a movie based on the classic Pippi Longstocking story. Jeffrey Clifford and Rosie Alison will also produce for Heyday.

Red-haired Longstocking is the main character in the eponymous series of children’s books by celebrated Swedish author Lindgren. She originated from bedside stories told to her daughter Karin about an anything-but-pious freckled little girl with boundless energy, strength and bravery.

The first three chapter books were published from 1945 to 1948, followed by three short stories and a number of picture book adaptations. They have been translated into 77 languages with more than 65 million copies sold world-wide.

There have been a number of film and TV series adaptations of the stories over the years, including Columbia Pictures’ 1988 movie The New Adventures Of Pippi Longstocking.
