To the director of the film Lino DiSalvo, Playmobil: The Movie offered the opportunity to remember how he played with his favorite toys when he was a child. «Toys like Playmobil are a gateway to your past memories, like time machines and when they take you back, they immediately rekindle that spark. I got the inspiration for the film when I visited my childhood home and found some of my toys »
"I had a great time doubling the bad emperor Maximus. – explains J-Ax – he is a spoiled dictator who hides his childish and tender part so much that he believes he can control the people by giving them a great show to watch. It was a new and interesting experience for me, especially because as a child I dreamed of the legendary Playmobil galleon, which I managed to buy from a collector with the first money earned from music ".
Even Cristina D'Avena, interpreter of the most famous cartoon theme songs, "had a great time doubling the character of the Fairy Godmother, because in a way I feel a bit like her too. During my concerts, I always urge my audience to pursue their dreams, because credendoc, they can come true. And then working with J-Ax, who sang Pollon in my last album, and I still hope to collaborate with him is always extraordinary ».
