The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn is a tale of adventure. It’s about a young reporter who follows potential stories wherever it may lead him. His passion about this job is so strong that he tails the stories even if it will lead him to earth’s boundaries.
Tintin is derived from a popular Belgian cartoon character, and has been renowned for many years. He also has Snowy, a white dog, and they encounter a mad scientist, a lunatic pirate captain and twins. What a horrifying thought.
This film is the first of a potential and planned trilogy. Icon Steven Spielberg will direct this first one and the succeeding film is planned to be directed by its co-producer, which is Lord of the Rings genius Peter Jackson. And because of the technology that James Cameron has brought to us through Avatar, The Secret of the Unicorn will also use the same motion capture technology. This 3D will be so good so we can expect the most stunning visuals that was ever used in a children’s movie. Though there is no word yet who the third film’s director will be, the filmmakers should be careful to choose because that person will have to live up to a Spielberg and a Jackson.
This project seems like it is a film that will feed the souls of Jackson and Spielberg first before they consider their pockets. While it also looks like it is a project for a living, their new technology is something to play with.
