One of my favorite panels this weekend at Comic-Con was the Hall H presentation of The Adventures of Tin Tin, which was on Friday. Director Steven Spielberg made his first appearance ever at the convention, and producer Peter Jackson made a surprise appearance. Watch the videos of the panel after the break.
Spielberg was given the prestigious Inkpot Award and a great highlight reel was shown of his work. After talking about Tin Tin, he mentioned that they thought about making the movie live action with just a CGI dog, but it didn’t work the way he wanted. They then showed what was supposedly video of the test footage, and it had a fake-drunk Peter Jackson trying out as Captain Haddock, with the CGI dog (which looked great, by the way) showing off and getting drunk himself before falling off the pier. Jackson then showed up at the actual panel. As you can tell in the video, both got standing ovations from the audience, and the footage from the movie was well received.
