Tad, the Lost Explorer Becomes Highest Grossing Spanish Animated Film

This year, while the oeuvre of animated features from the likes of Dreamworks, Pixar, Disney, and Sony were breaking box office records in North America, the Spanish audiences chose to go with something a little more homegrown when choosing which animated feature to watch. This resulted in a CG feature about a Peruvian treasure hunt titled Tad, the Lost Explorer to become the highest grossing Spanish animated feature of all time, garnering over $24 million at the box office. The film’s original title, Las Aventuras de Tadeo Jones is a nod to the iconic Indiana Jones franchise.

Tad, the Lost Explorer is distributed by Paramount, and follows the story of a construction worker who accidentally becomes a daredevil treasure hunter in Peru. The film debuted in 3D in Spain last August 31, and opened in Russia last December 6. There are also plans to release it in Europe and Brazil in 2013.
