Terry Gilliam explains Monty Python's animation.

#Montypython @Johncleese @PythonJones

This is brilliant


I love Monty Python, it entertained me as a kid and taught me not to take everything at face value. So when i heard that they were making a new movie, understandably, i got excited. When i heard it was a 3D animated film, i soiled my pants. Unfortunately the film is not being animated by Terry Gilliam, the mastermind behind the animations in the T.V. series, however i wouldn't be surprised to see at least some part of it animated by the cut out genius.

So, some details, Their next film, A Liar's Autobiography, is an animated 3D movie based on the memoir of the late Python member, Graham Chapman, who died in 1989 at the age of 48. The film will use Chapman's own voice - from a reading of his autobiography shortly before he died of cancer - and entertainment channel EPIX announced that the film will be released in spring 2012 in both 2D and 3D formats. Produced and directed by London-based Bill Jones, Ben Timlett and Jeff Simpson, the new film has 15 animation companies working on chapters that will range from three to 12 minutes in length, each in a different style.
