El soldadito de plomo, by Emilio Aragón, comes to life thanks to an animation. Just as it did with "La flor mas grande del mundo" (The biggest flower in the world), Continental Producciones has created a short animated film using plasticine, set in the Toy Museum in Allariz (Orense) and where Andersen’s story is told from a new angle.
This animation is fruit of twelve months’ work and 18,000 shots. For the voices of the characters Continental Producciones and Algarabía Animación have chosen actors of the calibre of Manuel Manquiña (the “Cigarrón”) and Luis Piedrahita (the Soldier).
