This maybe just a rumor but my friends dad works for BBC in the cbbc department and it was said that in the future they hope to have a new adventures of tintin series with permission from the Herge foundation this maybe just a rumor what does everyone else think

I doubt that brand new stories will be written, as I doubt that Moulinsart Herge foundation will give permission for it because they haven't allowed new stories to be written like in 'Bob & Bobette' or 'Blake and Mortimer'.

It would be unlikely that new stories would be written as per Hergé's wishes, but that doesn't mean that they couldn't adapt the current books. But as there's already a perfectly serviceable series in the form of the Ellipse-Nelvana one, it would seem an unusual decision.

It would be nice to see a new adaptation, though!

Yes! Complete with Captain Haddocks alcholic episodes and smoking and intense action/character scenes that are 'dumbed' down a bit in the Ellipse-Nelvana version.

I couldn't agree more tintinrulz - it would be nice to see an adaptation which is more faithful to the books in terms of charaterisation and artistic style and in plot.
Alhough I did enjoy the Nelvana version it did leave me feeling that I was watching a childrens program - which the books never made me feel when reading them. It's great for kids to have their own programs, but I guess I would love to see and adaptation of Tintin which was more faithful to the books (I also want to hear Snowy speak!)

:oP

If we see anything at all I imagine we're looking at either a CGI animation or maybe a live actions series.

To be honest I doubt either one as with a film still in discussion it seems unlikely Moulinsart would be looking to sell TV rights, also I don't imagine BBC would be the leading force behind any TV series.

It could also mean they're looking to have the Ellipse TV series on CBBC?

Would it be CBBC or CBBies?

I think that if anything, that is even less likely now than then… Just see what’s happening to Tom & Jerry…!

The whole Tom and Jerry smoking situation is just silly it was only ONE individual who complained with all the stuff that children are exposed to on tv i dont realy think it matters why do people have to complain about something on TV if you dont like it then change the channel.
Theres a few smoking scenes in the Tintin cartoons

I wonder how long it'll be before Churchill's cigar is digitally removed from photos as it glamourises smoking? ;)

I think one way for a more faithful series to be made would be an independent company working outside the UK. Producing a series to be screened on CBBC would mean an even more sanitised end result.
