Studio Ghibli’s latest release is almost here.

Back in October of 2016, it was reported that Ghibli’s Ronja, the Robber’s Daughter, which premiered in Japan back in 2014, would be making its way to the States and now Amazon Prime has shed more light on the release of the series along with a brand new trailer. Featuring 26 episodes in all, Ronja will, as previously reported, feature narration from Gillian Anderson and will hit Prime later this month. Helmed by Hayao Miyazaki’s son, Goro Miyazaki, the series is an adaptation of a fantasy novel by Swedish author Astrid Lindgren — the same man behind Pippi Longstocking. According to Amazon’s own synopsis:

The epic 26-part story of a ten-year-old girl born on a stormy night in a mountain fort, surrounded by her parents and a loving band of robbers. She grows to be a strong and active girl, and discovers that the forest is both a beautiful and frightening place inhabited by strange creatures. She befriends the son of her father’s rival and so begins the drama of her friendship and family loyalties. We watch as she explores and understands these key factors in her life, and discovers that seemingly irresolvable choices can finally be made with the help of love and understanding.

Ronja, the Robber’s Daughter will be available to Prime members for streaming come January 27.
