Father and son thesps Stellan and Alexander Skarsgard plus Peter Stormare will voice the lead characters in the English-lingo version of “Moomins and the Comet Chase,” the first Nordic 3D toon feature.

Pic, helmed by Maria Lindberg and produced by Tom Carpelan for Finland’s Filmkompaniet, is a follow up to 2008’s “Moomin and Midsummer Madness.”

Much beloved in Europe, the books have been translated into more than 40 languages, and the adventures of the Moomins have been turned into films, TV series, legit plays and radio shows.

Toon is due for a fall release.
