Moulinsart S.A., the public limited company created to protect and promote the works of the iconic Belgian artist HERGÉ, is delighted to announce the launch (phase 1) of a new English-language website hosted at Tintin.com.

Tintin’s growing popularity, ever since his first appearance all the way back in 1929, is simply astounding. Today 250 million books have been sold and the brave reporter’s stories have been translated into 100 languages. And yet, set to première on 21 October, the new Tintin.com website promises to take visitors on a whole new adventure!

An animated opening sequence gives Tintin fans their first view of the new site, through the eyepiece of an ancient nautical telescope: the dazzling homepage features an interactive carousel of book cover images! Visitors go on to discover fun and informative character profiles, adventure résumés and behind-the-scenes stories, while learning about the places Tintin visits on his worldwide adventures. The treasure trove is overflowing with videos, animations and breathtaking graphics taken from the Tintin adventures. Ten thousand thundering typhoons: there really is something for everyone to enjoy!

Tintin.com also incorporates an online shop where visitors and fans can explore an extensive collection of Tintin merchandise and gifts including Tintin T-shirts, fluffy toys and all kinds of collectibles. The site will initially ship to destinations within the United Kingdom; additional territories all over the world-including the continental US-will be served as soon as late November.

The launch of the new site comes no more than five days before the eagerly-awaited 26 October UK release of the new Tintin film. Directed by Steven Spielberg and produced by Peter Jackson, the 3D motion capture feature stars an international cast that includes Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot, Defiance), Daniel Craig (James Bond, Cowboys and Aliens), Andy Serkis (Lord of the Rings, King Kong) and comedy duo Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz). The Adventures of Tintin:The Secret of the Unicorn, from a screenplay by Steven Moffat, Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish, is the first in a series of Tintin films. Advance screenings in Belgium and France have wowed journalists and Tintin fans alike: every review has hailed the film as an outstanding success!

The Director of Moulinsart S.A. and Executive Producer of the new Tintin movie, Nick Rodwell, has commented on the upcoming Tintin website:

“One of the biggest challenges of my existence was to help create a new website for all English speaking countries. Choosing the right team made this all possible.”

The new site has been developed and executed by the San Francisco office of global agency Euro RSCG in conjunction with Moulinsart S.A. Euro RSCG CEO Alan Burgis:

“Any time you get to work with one of the world’s truly great global entertainment brands is a great day for Euro RSCG. The Tintin franchise is such an opportunity. We believe the site we created is both true to the brand’s traditional audience base and yet an exciting destination for all of those new fans that will be created by the movie launch, which is a Spielberg/Jackson collaboration. Nice company for us to keep!!”

Moulinsart S.A. is committed to adding quality content to Tintin.com. Tintin fans will be delighted to discover regular updates in the months to come.
