Tad the Explorer and the Emerald Table is a great family show that can be seen by the whole family, especially children from 6 years old.

“Tad is now a remarkable young man of 23 years. He was born long before he was known to the general public and I have spent half my life with him. I consider him almost like a son, who we guide until he flies on his own, and who must constantly be taught that each step is important”, says director Enrique Gato. ”

For the director, an animated film is always a journey as big as a mammoth, no less than three or four years of investment. The team therefore needs to ensure from the outset that the journey is worthwhile.

“When the project carries the number “3” in its luggage, one has to measure this new step very carefully, especially considering that Tad’s name is associated with it and that it is out of the question to betray him”underlines the filmmaker.

With each film, Enrique Gato makes a point of ensuring that it will be made up of new, unexpected ingredients, capable of screwing the spectator in his seat and leaving him waiting for the next scene.
