Weta’s Adventures of Tintin Art Book? There’s an App For That

Tintin Artbook the app

Like many of you, I had my reservations about Spielberg and Moffat’s The Adventures of Tintin. Based on Georges Remi’s classic comics, the film served as an attempt to revive the series with state-of-the-art 3D animation. After having the pleasure of seeing the film in theaters, those reservations were laid to rest. While the 3D animation may initially appeal to kids, the films plot, littered with a healthy dose of violence and alcoholism, befits a more mature audience — especially those of us who grew up with the comics. Back in November, Weta released a hardcover coffee table art book giving fans a glimpse at the creative process behind the film. Now they’re taking it a step further with its digital release.

At roughly a sixth of the cost, The Art of the Adventures of Tintin — The App delivers the same coffee table experience but with added features. Users will be given access to exclusive 360 degree environments and character models they can navigate and rotate with the swipe of a finger. They’ve also included embedded video clips, and more, all for the low introductory price of $5.99. I’d like to think that’s surprisingly cheap for iOS content of this nature, especially when most books commonly available via the iBookstore can usually cost twice as much with half the content. The app should already be available in the US but will be available in French on January 10th — Tintin’s birthday!
