Storm Films and its two co-producers blew 50m ($6.2m) Norwegian kroner on the lavish production, making it the most expensive children’s film in Norwegian history. 
 
According to IMDB estimates, the film has already made a small profit, generating some $7m at the box office, primarily in Norway were the film was the fourth most successful film, with 365,902 admissions in 2014 following its September release. 
 
It has so far opened in nine other countries, drawing in some 40,000 viewers in Sweden, and small audiences in Estonia, Turkey, UAE, Iraq, Jordan, Bahrain and Oman. 
 
A lot now hangs on whether it can win over a large audience in Germany when it opens on 7 May.
