D’Artagnan et les trois mousquetaires, le 11 août 2021, réalisé par Toni García.

Le grand retour en 3D CGI des héros chiens anthropomorphes qui ont fait la gloire du studio espagnol BRB est bien plus qu’une simple adaptation. La trame de l’histoire bien sûr suit les aventures de D’Artagnan, le jeune gascon qui rêve de devenir un mousquetaire du Roi. Sa route va l’amener à croiser Atos, Portos et Aramis le célèbre trio de mousquetaires, mais aussi Constance qui fera chavirer son cœur. Cette dernière a un rôle bien plus important aujourd’hui que dans la série des années 80, comme l’explique Toni García « Les femmes d’aujourd’hui ne sauraient se contenter d’un rôle de potiche. C’est pourquoi nous avons modernisé le rôle de Constance qui n’hésite pas à se battre s’il le faut. Elle vit sa vie, elle est actrice et non pas spectatrice». Le réalisateur continue: « J’ai pu réaliser tous mes fantasmes de mise en scène grâce à la 3D. Les scènes sont bien plus dynamiques. C’est un film d’animation digne d’Hollywood. D’ailleurs ne vous attendez pas forcément à un Happy End». Une prise de position audacieuse pour ce film d’animation made in Espagne qui promet de plaire aussi bien aux spectateurs nostalgiques qu’à ceux qui vont découvrir cette licence. En somme un film pour un, un film pour tous !

À noter, pour les nostalgiques de la première heure, après le générique du film, une version karaoké de la chanson « un pour tous et tous pour un» sur l’air entraînant composé par Manel Gil-Inglada sera diffusée, restez bien jusqu’à la fin.


Charades Attracts Buyers With 3D Animated Film ‘Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Charades, the Paris-based sales company behind the Oscar-nominated “Mirai” and “I Lost My Body,” has locked a raft of deals on “Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds,” a 3D animated feature inspired by Alexandre Dumas’ 19th-century classic D’Artagnan novels.

Budgeted in the region of $10 million, the family-skewing film is a reboot of the popular 1980s TV series “Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds,” which aired in more than 100 countries and on 150 networks.

Charades launched the film at the AFM and closed Central Partnership (Russia), Ex-Yugoslavia (Blitz), Baltics (Acme), Turkey (Tanweer), Middle East (Empire International), Israel (Forum), Greece (Odeon) and South Africa (Empire Entertainment). The company is in negotiations to pre-sell the film to France, Germany, Australia/New Zealand and Poland.

“The project is in line with our DNA: a strong IP, a very solid studio and of course there is an emotional attachment to the brand as the TV series was such a hit when we were younger,” said Charades’ co-founder Pierre Mazars. “This fall in particular, given the context, it is also an opportunity to present to buyers a commercial family animation that can be released worldwide early next year,” added Mazars.

The film follows Dogtanian, a fearless young boy who embarks on an adventure-filled journey to Paris hoping to become one of the king’s “muskehounds” guards.

Produced by the Spanish studio Apolo Films with the Asian studio Cosmo Maya, “Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds” will be released in Spain in January by leading Spanish distribution banner A Contracorriente Films, which previously released “Ballerina” and “Bigfoot Superstar.” Lusomundo will distribute the film in Portugal.

Besides “Mirai” and “I Lost My Body,” Charades’ track record in animation also includes Ben Stassen’s 3D animated features “Bigfoot Superstar” and “The Queen’s Corgi.”


One for all and all for one, Muskehounds are always ready…”  Who has not sung this song in his life?

Apolo Films is going to make it sung again all over the world. The production of the animated film Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds will be released early next year in cinemas, bringing back the action-packed and humorous adventures of the famous characters in the series created by Claudio Biern Boyd.

The production process, carried out in Apolo Films studios in Pamplona and in the studios of COSMOS MAYA, will make the highest 3D quality to bring to the world screens a feature film to have fun and entertain the whole family.

It should be noted that the composition of the music of the feature film will be made by the award-winning composer Manel Gil-Inglada, currently working on the composition of soundtracks for cinemas and orchestral works.

Furthermore, an American Hollywood team directed by Doug Langdale, author among other animated productions of "Puss in Boots" and "Kung fu Panda", have participated in the adaptation of the script for the big screen.

All these facts make us face to a world-class production capable of competing with the best current productions.

Let's keep tuning the voices to sing the song again!


VARIETY.‘Dogtanian’ Animated Feature In The Works from Cosmos-Maya, Apolo Films.

India and Singapore-based animation outfit Cosmos-Maya is driving into the animated feature arena with “Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds,” an adaptation of Alexandre Dumas’ classic novel “The Three Musketeers.” A co-production with Spain’s Apolo Films, “Dogtanian” is an iconic television property that was first aired on MBS in Japan in 1981, Television Espanola in 1982 and the BBC in 1985. There have been several iterations of the show since, and some 40 years on, it is still airing in more than 100 territories. Emmy and Annie nominee Doug Langdale (“Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness”) is writing the film script, based on the original written by Claudio Biern Boyd, who is President of Apolo Films. Toni Garcia (“Invizimals”) is set to direct. Universal has boarded the project, taking SVOD for several territories including the U.K., France and Germany. Spanish partners on the project include TVE, Lusomundo and A Contracorriente, with financial support from ICO, Banco Santander, Sodena and Sonagar. Cosmos-Maya will part finance, co-produce and distribute exclusively in Asia. The company has set up a state-of-the-art independent studio to produce feature films. Garcia said: “It is fascinating to see the levels of workmanship at the studio. There is a culture of sharing and learning, which positively impacts the quality of the output and delivery time.” Cosmos-Maya chief executive Anish Mehta added: “With 25 years of rich experience in animation production, and the backing of American private equity firm KKR, which has a controlling stake in Cosmos-Maya, we are well poised for all-round growth.” “’Dogtanian’ will entertain children as it used to do their parents 40 years ago, following our philosophy: make kids happy,” said Biern Boyd, who wrote the original. The Cosmos-Maya catalogue includes animated shows “Motu Patlu,” “Inspector Chingum” and “Vir: The Robot Boy.” The company has several upcoming co-productions, including 2D animated series “Galactic Agency” with France’s 100 Animation, for French broadcaster Gulli.


Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds begins its production stage, once all the preproduction has been finished. The film counts on a first-quality team led by its creator Claudio Biern Boyd, the well-known screenwriter Douglas Langdale, Paco Sáez on the storyboard, and Toni García as Director. Dogtanian, Juliette, Pip and the Muskehounds are back... with a new look and a whole new and frenetic adventure.


One for all and all for one!!! The presentation in society of the arrival of Apolo Films and its first feature film to Navarra, "Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds", took place on May 15, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., in the Plaza del Castillo of Pamplona with the presence of Dogtanian parading in a carriage and escorted by the Association of Musketeers of Navarre, on foot and on horseback. The delegation developed a musical tour through the streets of the Historial Center and Ensanche, which ended with an exhibition in the Plaza del Castillo where there was a fun photocall and theatrical performances.


Dogtanian feature film is already in Pamplona! The launching of the production of the animated feature film Dogtanian and the Three Muskehound, immediate result of the establishment of Apolo Films in Navarra, is a fact. The jump to the big screen of the popular character created by Claudio Biern Boyd will take place from the studios of Pamplona where production has just been transferred. The updated version in a film format of the cartoon classic is scheduled for release in 2019.


It is already official: Apolo Films is the first large digital animation studio that is settled in Navarra. We opened our studios in Pamplona, in the municipality of Mutilva, as a result of the contacts initiated by the Public Societies of the Government of Navarra SODENA and NICDO / Navarra Film Commission in 2016 with the presidency of DIBOOS (Spanish Federation of Associations of Animation Producers) to locate a zone for the development of animation studies in the Autonomous Community.
