Was there ever a different Stephanie in LazyTown? (The current actress being Julianna Rose Mauriello.)
Since it was shot in Icelandic, and the other humans are Icelandic actors, so maybe there was a different girl. Find the girl… find the clips online.
Surfing for something in Icelandic is a definite challenge. There is a large body of material, butno translators online. I’m having to cram bits of Icelandic grammar just to formulate search terms.
- IMDB entry for the English version
- Lazy Town is called Latibær in Icelandic, Sportacus is called “rttalfurinn” (loosely translates as “the sport elf”) and Robbie Rotten is “Glanni Glpur”.
- Since the name of the show is “Latibær” I’m also using the search term “Latabæjar” which apparently is the first word conjugated in some way (Icelandic nouns have cases!).
- Creator Magnús Scheving‘s IMDB entry
- the Icelandic show was not a full “Show”- it was a 10 to 15 minute episode, or a series of them, aired within another show

The book that is the movie. Yikes. I guess I have to read this now!
Holy Moly… I wonder if I should stop soon. I had no idea this was a book as well as a documentary.
Maybe there are collectible trading cards? A videogame for PS2 and XBOX? Promotional soda cups at McDonald’s?
