and P3K PINOCCHIO, a co-production with CineGroupe and Animakids/France 2 Cinema.
EL CID tells the legend of Rodrigo de Vivar, better known as El Cid.

Josep Pozo directed the film and it was released in Spain on December 19, 2003. Hannover House will bring the film to theaters in the U.S. in September 2004.
P3K PINOCCHIO is a CG reinvention of the classic Pinocchio tale. In the year 3000, Gepetto creates Pinocchio, a very special robot equipped with a one-of-a-kind P3K processor that endows him with the lively imagination of a youngster. Cyberina, the good fairy, guides Pinocchio on his quest to become a real boy. The film was directed by Daniel Robichaud.
