TVA FILMS is pleased to announce the release of three new films for the family in cinemas this summer. Films adapted from successful comics will adapt the pleasure of reading to the screen. The smallest of the great heroes SAMSAM will hit the big screen in French and English from July 31st. Also based on the famous series of comics which sold more than 5 million copies, the film LES BLAGUES DE TOTO will take the screen on August 14, and will give young and old the taste to tease each other.

After earning 2.5 million at the box office when it was released in France by StudioCanal, the animated film SAMSAM, directed by Tanguy de Kermel, is adapted from the comic strip by Serge Bloch and the 3D animated television series of the same name. From the same director, this 91-episode series airs on Télé-Québec.

SamSam, the smallest of the great heroes, has still not discovered his first superpower, while at home and at school, everyone has one! Faced with the anxiety of his parents and the mockery of his peers, he goes in search of this hidden power. With the help of Mega, a mysterious new student in his school, SamSam embarks on this adventure full of cosmic monsters…


Directed by Pascal Bourdiaux, LES BLAGUES DE TOTO is a film adaptation of Thierry Coppée’s 15-volume comic book series, which has sold more than 5 million copies. The family comedy features Guillaume de Tonquédec (Le prénom,, Barbecue), Anne Marivin (Bienvenue chez les Ch’tis, Les petits mouchoirs), Ramzy Bedia (La tour Monparnasse infernale) and Gavril Dartevelle.

At school, Toto is far better at making his friends laugh than listening to his teacher’s lessons. With his parents too, Toto’s jokes often turn into disasters… The latest? A sculpture falling during an event organized by his father’s boss. But this time, Toto pleads innocence and refuses to be accused of something that for once he did not do! Together with his best friends, he will lead the investigation.
