The Belgian Tourist Office Brussels & Wallonia, in collaboration with Moulinsart, has produced its very own Tintin movie to coincide with the release of Steven Spielberg and Michael Jackson’s The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn.
Destination T, which is only available on the internet on Belgium’s YouTube channel, is a mini road movie following in the footsteps of the famous Belgian boy reporter through his birthplace of Brussels to Louvain-la-Neuve in the South of Belgium.
It illustrates how much the inhabitants of Brussels have of Tintin in them, and how much they have also influenced Hergé’s work, and invites fans of Tintin (current and future) to visit his birth town of Brussels and the Museum dedicated to his creator in Louvain-la-Neuve, south of Brussels .
Destination T also forms the basis of a four-week Facebook competition « and so you think you know all about Tintin?! » via which internet users can win various prizes ranging from a barking Snowy key ring to a trip for a family of four to live the ultimate Tintin experience in Brussels & Wallonia.
The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn, directed by Steven Spielberg and produced by Peter Jackson, premiered in Brussels on Saturday 23 October 2011.
Steven Spielberg who attended the Brussels premiere was awarded Belgium’s highest accolade, the Croix de l'Ordre des Commandeurs
The online competition is accessible via the Facebook pages of the Belgian Tourist Office-Brussels & Wallonia offices in the UK and Ireland (BelgiumThePlaceto.Be since 2001), Flanders, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Japan and the US.
Moulinsart is the company set up to protect and promote the work of Hergé
