PATORUZITO and his spin offs comics, delivered a beautiful message of love, humble and forgiveness with a sincerity that no actual comic (and even less any PIXAR movie) could came even close.
When I heard about the movie; of course I was worried. In today's standards of 3D / COMPUTER GENERATED cartoons; PATORUIZITO could came up as a total disaster. To my relief; most of the movie kept the old hand drawing, 2D and naive style that gave the comics its warm and all of us love. However, sadly, the creators got tempted by the new technology there lies the biggest failure in this movie.
PIXAR / Disney can spend hundred of millions in an image; trying to go to their territory is an almost defeated battle. the movie suffers in the inevitable comparison; which is not really fair; since P/D technical quality does not cover for their lack of humanity and real poetry, that PATORUZITO really has.
I would liked also a little more character development, particularly by Isidorito and less Lion King's scenes; but as a first try (and as far as I know commercially successful one) the movie is more than acceptable and I am anxious for the second installment.
