A clue hidden in a toy ship leads boy reporter Tintin on a dangerous treasure hunt in one of the two stories that will form the basis of the upcoming motion picture The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn, directed by Steven Spielberg and produced by Peter Jackson!
A scared tribal statue has been stolen from the museum! Tintin and Snowy are on the case. But someone is creating phony statues to throw them off, and it looks like Tintin has some statue hunting competition. Following clues, wearing disguises and making narrow escapes, Tintin ends up in the foreign, jungle home of the statue’s tribal descendants. Will Tintin discover the true whereabouts of the real statue before it’s too late?
