A sequel is coming for “The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn”
One of the best animated films in the past decade, “The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn,” was directed by Steven Spielberg with Peter Jackson as a producer.
The two were supposed to switch roles for a sequel to the worldwide hit (it grossed over $350 million just in theaters), but thanks to “The Hobbit” films turning into a trilogy everything has been on hold.
Well now that things are finally coming to an end (the last “Hobbit” film comes out next year) it looks like Jackson is gearing up to make the sequel.
ComingSoon has quoted him as saying, “As soon as I’m free of ‘The Hobbit,’ I’ll be going back into doing ‘Tintin.’ It was held up by ‘The Hobbit,’ but we have every intention of doing another ‘Tintin’ movie and it’s just waiting on me to be done with these Hobbit movies.”
This is exciting news for fans of the first film, like me, who have eagerly been awaiting a follow-up, and I’m hoping for a prime summer 2016 release (hopefully there will not be too many super hero movies that year).
