The Great Miracle: a movie that is animated and spiritual

Already released in Mexico, the animated picture has gotten positive reviews. It is directed by Bruce M. Morris, who earned an Academy Award for his work on The Princess and the Frog.

People take things for granted; it’s human nature. In The Greatest Miracle, producer Pablo Jose Barroso and Dos Corazones Productions offer a 3D, animated story of hope and faith set against the backdrop of mysterious spirits and a religious service many have come to take for granted.

The story revolves around three people who find themselves at the same Catholic Mass because of crises they are struggling to endure. Going to Mass is not new to any of them – but they need assistance to embrace its true meaning. That guidance comes from their guardian angels, who help them to understand the struggle between good and evil, and the miraculous triumph of faith that manifests itself in every celebration of the Eucharist.

Through their angels, they come to understand what Pope Benedict XVI described in Light of the World, his book-length interview with German journalist Peter Seewald. “Something quite special is going on here,” the Pope said of the Eucharist. “He is here, the One before whom we fall on our knees!”

The Greatest Miracle is directed by Bruce M. Morris. He is the visual writer of the animated hits Pocahontas and Hercules, and earned an Academy Award nomination for his work on 2009’s The Princess and the Frog.

Oscar-nominee Mark McKenzie (Dances with Wolves) wrote the score for the film, which earned the 2011 Hollywood Music in Media Award for Best Original Score – Independent Film/Short/Documentary. McKenzie’s work also includes Men in Black, Spiderman and Ice Age: The Meltdown.

The Greatest Miracle opens Dec. 9 on 3D screens in 14 states.
