Blender scene crashing when I am trying to animate it in Eevee

Hi. I need to re-visit a scene made by a colleague. I can work on it and I can render a still frame (at least the first one). But when I press the render animation command after the first frame the computer crashes.
It does not seem a memory thing cause the scene is not using that much memory.

Another curious thing is that when I try to append the “scene” into a new empty blender file it does not bring the proper collections, but only a few repeated meshes…Something is wrong, but I am not sure how to troubleshoot this one. I tried with the system console and check errors…It gives me a few errors not finding plugins…but I think it is not that.

Thank you
