Tad: The Lost Ex­plorer [Vivendi Ent., $14.93]

Animation Magazine - - Dvds & Downloads -

Last year, this in­ven­tive Span­ish CG ad­ven­ture took Spain’s ma­jor awards events by storm (in­clud­ing the cov­eted Goyas) and earned a nom­i­na­tion for the An­necy Cristal. Now the English-lan­guage ver­sion of En­rique Gato’s an­i­mated ad­ven­ture comes home on DVD and Blu-ray 3D combo pack ($19.97) thanks to Vivendi.

The film’s hero, Tad, is a hum­ble Chicago con­struc­tion worker who dreams of be­ing a world fa­mous arche­ol­o­gist like his hero, Max Mor­don. When he’s mis­taken for a real pro­fes­sor, he jour­neys to Peru to team up with Prof. Levrof and his daugh­ter Sara to help un­ravel the mys­tery of the Lost City of Paititi—while evad­ing the machi­na­tions of the evil Kop­po­nen and his shad­owy Odysseus cor­po­ra­tion. We’d take this Ibe­rian spoof over Shia Labeouf’s take on Indiana Jones any day. [Re­lease date: Jan­uary 14]
