Twenty-five years after the original premiered, a CGI remake of The Lion King led a Hollywood assault on the Swedish box office, with animated children’s feature Bamse and the Thunderbell starring Peter Haber (Beck) being the most viewed Swedish film in 2019.
Four percent of Swedish premieres in 2019 were kids films, but three out of the top five domestic box office releases were made for children, with the Sune franchise accounting for two of those due to its Christmas release window extending ticket sales into the following year.
However, an honourable mention goes out to the best of the rest: Tuva Novotny’s adaptation of Britt-Marie Was Here, based on Fredrik Backman’s novel of the same name about love, community, and second chances.
