Tad the Lost Explorer and The Curse of the Mummy (U)

Dir: Enrique Gato 2022 | 89 mins

When he mistakenly destroys a sarcophagus, he unleashes a spell that endangers the lives of his friends Mummy, Jeff and Belzoni.

With everyone against him and only helped by Sara, Tad embarks on a flight full of adventures. It will take him from Mexico to Chicago and from Paris to Egypt, to find a way to end the mummy’s curse.
