Zip and Zap, two beloved Spanish comic book characters, are brought to life in this stellar mystery adventure. As the school year ends, Zip and Zap are caught cheating on their final exams and are sent to a strict boarding school ruled by a fun-hating headmaster named Falconetti. With his security guards watching every move, the boys band together with a trio of new friends to create the secret Marble Gang, creating pranks and leaving marbles behind as their signature. Their mischief eventually uncovers a secret that dates back to the school’s first headmaster and a series of puzzles that only the young-at-heart can solve. Director Óskar Santos has spectacularly resurrected the old-fashioned boys adventure for today’s generation. With great performances, a fast-paced story, and eye-popping special effects, Zip & Zap and the Marble Gang is destined to become a family-adventure favorite.
