New Adventures Of Pippi Longstocking, The
The amazing freckle-faced Pippi Longstocking is back for fun, laughter and, of course, a lot of mischief in her best adventure yet! When Pippi, an extraordinary, independent girl with a quick mind, good sense of humor and magical powers, is sailing with her sea captain father, she is suddenly washed overboard and lost in a fierce storm. Holding on to a raft and her optimistic spirit, Pippi eventually drifts ashore to a small coastal town where she sets up her house in the ancient, vacated mansion "Villa Villekulla." There, with her horse Alphonso and monkey Mr. Neilson, Pippi begins a new life without any adult supervision. The result is newfound friendship with young neighbors Annika and Tommy, soaring the skies in a homemade flying machine, enjoying a river barrel ride and escaping the conniving tactics of ruthless businessmen and an unhappy trip to a children's home. Great fun for the whole family, the musical, magical The New Adventures Of Pippi Longstocking is the first American live-action adaptation of the internationally popular books by Astrid Lindgren.
