Acclaimed Japanese anime filmmaker Gorō Miyazaki is going to make a Tv-series from Sweden's beloved children's author Astrid Lindgren's fantasy book "Ronja the Robber's Daughter". The series is scheduled to air on Japanese television this fall. 

Miyazaki, the son of legendary anime filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki, is most known for his films "Tales from Earthsea" and "From Up on Poppy Hill."  He says that his "goal is to create a work that everyone, from children to adults, will be able to enjoy", according to the website animenewsnetwork.

The story revolves around Ronja, a girl growing up among a clan of bandits in a forest. She is the only daughter of the chief of the bandits and is expected to become the leader of the clan herself one day.
