After the Hoptoad, the ship of Pippi's father, is tossed away by a freak thunderstorm, Pippi takes up residence, along with her pet horse and pet monkey, in her old family home of Villa Villekulla. While the neighborhood kids think that the place is haunted, siblings Tommy and Annika decide to go inside after they meet Pippi. The trio become fast friends and go on adventures like cleaning with scrubbing shoes, dodging "splunks," river-riding via barrel, leaving home in an propeller-bike, stopping Villa Villekulla from being demolished, and even stopping Pippi from being put into an orphanage. However, Pippi decides to go after Tommy and Annika almost tumble over a waterfall and leave their parents no choice but to ban them from playing with Pippi. While Pippi doesn't fit well within the orphanage, she stops a fire from breaking out, which makes her a hero to the entire town. Deciding that the orphanage isn't viable, Pippi is permitted to return home on December 25th. There, she reunites with Tommy, Annika, and even her father, Captain Efraim Longstocking. Efraim offers Pippi the title of princess after he washed ashore an island of cannibals and was proclaimed as their king. While Pippi appreciates the offer, she ultimately resigns herself to staying around Villa Villekulla because she couldn't stand leaving such good friends and Tommy and Annika. The New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking is a live-action children's film, 100 minutes long. It is also the film remake of the 1945 original children's story.
