Inhalt

Vicky the Viking

The live action film is based on the famous animation film series of the same title: The little redheaded Viking boy Wickie lives together with his mother Ylva and his father Halvar in the Viking village of Flake. Unlike other Vikings who by nature are strong, fearless and rather loud people, Vicky is sensitive and reserved – thus causing his stubborn father, the head of the Viking tribe, a lot of headache. But Wickie has the advantage of a special gift over his fellow Vikings: He is very smart and often has downright brilliant ideas. When Flake is one day raided by mysterious warriors who abduct all the children – only Wickie escapes the ordeal by chance – the Vikings set off to free the children. And they soon find out that sometimes brains are worth more than brawn.
