Lots of A-ha new is pouring in. A-ha manager Harald Wiik has announced that the Norwegian act will release expanded deluxe editions of their bestselling albums "Hunting High and Low" and "Scoundrel Days". It's not clear yet of these new editions will hold an extra bonus disc. In further news, you may also expect a new live DVD and a new career-spanning compilation.
And that's not all, also expected is an A-ha exhibition at the national library in Oslo, a documentary, a photo book and an updated edition of Jan Omdahl's book "The Swing Of Things". And if you are a Morten Harket fan, be sure to see the children's adventure movie "Yohan - Barnevandrer" ("Yohan - The Child Wanderer") in which the A-ha fontman plays the husband of Lexya (Aylar Lie) and father of Levi (Alexander Rybak). The film is based on true stories about child wanderers in Norway and will premier in Norway on 26 March. The scenes with Morten Harket were shot in the Summer of 2008. A movie trailer is now available.
There is one English and one Norwegian version of the film and both were filmed in parallel. "Yohan" is the most expensive children's film ever made in Norway. The film features 100 specific roles, 400 to 500 extras and around 200 animals. "Yohan" was filmed in Norway and also California, US in order to shoot scenes with wolves. These scenes were directed by Hollywood animal trainer Steve Martin.
It's not the first time Harket appers in a film. In 1988 he played in "Kamilla og tyven" and also sang on the soundtrack.
