Of the six members of Monty Python, it looks like “the dead one” is the first to get an autobiography. Graham Chapman, who passed away from cancer in 1989, is at the center of A Liar’s Autobiography: The Untrue Story of Monty Python’s Graham Chapman.   Chapman himself will be a feature in the film, along with John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones and Michael Palin.  The picture is a compilation of 17 different animation styles from 15 different animators and looks to be an absolute textbook lesson in absurdity.  Hit the jump to check out the trailer, images and official synopsis for A Liar’s Autobiography: The Untrue Story of Monty Python’s Graham Chapman.

Here’s the synopsis for A Liar’s Autobiography: The Untrue Story of Monty Python’s Graham Chapman, followed by the trailer and some images from the film that showcase the various animation styles:

Graham Chapman, probably best remembered as ‘the dead one from Monty Python’, writes and stars in the animated movie of his own life story, A Liar’s Autobiography. He was born, he went to Cambridge and met John Cleese, he smoked a pipe, he became a doctor, he became a Python, he decided he was gay (well, 70/30, according to a survey he did on himself), he got drunk a lot, he stopped being drunk, he made some films, he had some sex (actually, a lot), and moved to Los Angeles. Finally, he was whisked up into space by aliens (although that might have been in a film).

Featuring recordings of Chapman that he made of his book in 1982 and matched with recorded sound from present, the film reunites members of the Monty Python troupe and brings Chapman back to life in a tour de force of animation through 17 different animation styles from 15 different animators.
