papal cartoon

The Vatican will release this week a cartoon film about the life of Pope John Paul II.

It shows the life of the man born Karol Wojtyla, from his beginnings in Poland to his death last year.

It was made by Cavin Cooper, a firm based in Barcelona, and is directed by producer Jose Luis Lopez-Guardia.

According to a report from London's Daily Mail: "It is a fascinating story that works well as a cartoon,' said Lopez-Garcia.

"The Vatican has given its 'full backing' to the film, which has been dubbed into seven languages. Last night a source said it had been felt a cartoon 'would appeal to all'."
