laugh-filled, heart-warming, animated, Christian tale, The Lion of
Judah is premiers nationwide on June 3.
The Lion of Judah is seen through the eyes of a zany cast of stable
animals and features the voice talents of Academy Award-winner Ernest
Borgnine, Scott Eastwood, Michael Madsen, Georgina Cordova and others.
“This delightful animated story is a wonderful way to begin
discussing the hope of Jesus with your younger children. I loved it and
my grandchildren adored the characters,” says Ruth Graham, daughter of evangelist Billy
The Lion of Judah is a roaring adventure with Judah (Cordova), the spunky and heroic
lamb; Slink (Borgnine), a rat with a plan and the natural leader of the
group; Jack (Eastwood), a downtrodden, teenaged donkey with an attitude;
Boss (Madsen), a street-smart Raven who strives to be better; Esmay
(Sandi Patty), a motherly cow; Horace (Omar Benson Miller), an
unmannerly but big-hearted pig; Monty (Anupam Kher), a faint-hearted
horse; and Drake (Alphonso McAuley), a zany, rambling rooster.
A 3-D animated film depicting a variety of historical
Bible scenes as it entertains with humorous antics, The Lion of Judah
re-imagines the Easter story. Upon learning that Judah is in the clutches of the townspeople—who
plan to make him the highlight of the annual Passover feast—the
stablemates leave their cozy barn, embarking on an action-packed series
of laugh-out-loud exploits to free their friend. During their daring
journey, they interact and entwine with history … finally seeking help
from the King, born in their stable more than 30 years earlier.
Recognized by The Dove Foundation with the Dove Seal for Family Friendly
Entertainment, The Lion of Judah won the award for Best Animated Film
at the 2011 Sabaoth International Film Festival in Milan, Italy.
The Lion of Judah is rated PG and the running time is approximately 87 minutes.
