Resan till Melonia
In Per Åhlin's animated masterpiece, you are welcomed to the beautiful paradise island of Melonia. Here, the wizard Prospero lives with his daughter Miranda, the albatross Ariel, the kind gardener Caliban and all their friends. Close by lies the evil, gloomy island of Plutonia, where the money-hungry manufacturers Slug and Slagg rule. In their factories, the children kept as prisoners on Plutonia slave away. When the exciting story begins, Slug and Slagg have begun to throw hungry glances at Melonia and nothing will ever be the same again. Svenska Dagbladet's Elisabeth Sörenson found that the film is a "big and rich film story", Aftonbladet's Margareta Norlin, that it was "Christmas' best animated film" that year.
