Steven Spielberg‘s animated adventure film The Adventures of Tintin has released quite a long time ago and since then we are waiting for its sequel. Peter Jackson was supposed to direct the sequel after he was finished with The Hobbit trilogy but there was no news about the project for a very long time.
Spielberg is making the press rounds for Ready Player One, Premiere asked him for an update and he confirmed that the sequel is still in development, saying:
“Peter Jackson has to do the second part. Normally, if all goes well, he will soon start working on the script. As it takes two years of animation work on the film, for you, I would not expect to see it for about three years. But Peter will stick to it. Tintin is not dead!”
I absolutely loved the first Tintin film and I’ve been hoping that the sequel would actually get made. And now it seems like we will get to see it finally.
There have been rumors that the sequel will be based on a two-part story from the series, Seven Crystal Balls, and Prisoners of the Sun, and that it would be called The Adventures Of Tintin: Prisoners of the Sun. There is also a chance there would be a third film, maybe even more possibly based on the Tintin book Destination Moon and Explorers on the Moon.
The plot of the film apparently involves Tintin and Captain Haddock investigating a strange illness that has befallen seven explorers who have discovered an Incan tomb, before traveling to Peru to get to the bottom of the mystery.
The first film starred motion-capture performances by Jamie Bell, Andy Serkis, Daniel Craig, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Gad Elmaleh, Toby Jones and Mackenzie Crook.
