When will little Wickie finally become a real Viking? This question is giving his father Halvar sleepless nights. But when Sven the Terrible kidnaps the chief of Flake, Wickie unexpectedly gets his big chance. As deputy chief, he leads the Mighty Vikings Tjure, Snorre, Urobe, Gorm, Ulme and Faxe, thereby attracting the help of the fearless Svenja. They set sail for the Cape of Fear and, after a whirlwind of adventures, reach Sven’s castle where Halvar is incarcerated. However, the greatest task still awaits the Viking troupe. They set off over raging oceans, tropical beaches and dangerous icy wastelands in pursuit of the legendary treasure of the Gods, pitting themselves against an equally determined Sven the Terrible – but Wickie wouldn’t be Wickie if he hadn’t a few tricks up his sleeve to prevent Sven getting there first.


Christian Ditter was born in 1977 in Gießen and studied Directing at the University of Television and Film in Munich. His short films VERZAUBERT (2000) and GROUNDED (2003) won numerous prizes at international festivals as did his feature-length graduation and debut film FRENCH FOR BEGINNERS (2006). He then directed several episodes of the award-winning series TÜRKISCH FÜR ANFÄNGER (2007) and DOCTOR’S DIARY (2008). His adaptation of the classic children’s book THE CROCODILES (2009) has won the most international children and youth film awards of all time. He also directed the equally merited sequel THE CROCODILES STRIKE BACK (2010) and was involved as author and co-producer on THE CROCODILES – ALL FOR ONE (2011). Christian Ditter directed and wrote the screenplay of the first German-language 3D film WICKIE AND THE TREASURE OF THE GODS (2011). LOVE, ROSIE is his first English-language film. His next project will be the romantic comedy HOW TO BE SINGLE for Newline and Flower Films.
