Synopsis:

In ancient Israel, during the days of King Herod, a young couple’s world is turned upside down when the prophecy of a long-awaited deliverer unfolds upon their lives. They must trust in God’s promise in the midst of rising challenges, and their faithfulness is rewarded as they witness the most surprising and glorious event of all human history – the promise fulfilled in the birth of the Messiah.

Review:

This is a gorgeous telling of the birth of Christ, as told in the Gospel of Luke. The 50 minute video is sure to enrapture your kids and the entire family! As you can see above,  the animation is wonderful- it's optical motion technology (a blend of traditional animation techniques with the performance talents of ballet dancers and dramatic stage actors) makes for a truly unique visual experience!  

Director Todd Shaffer said “We want the musical to equip individuals and families on a faith level, and to entertain and inspire them on an artistic level. God has wired us for both, and I am excited to be able to combine faith and artistry to present His ancient story to modern audiences in this unique and exciting way.” 

We would say he succeeded beyond his aspirations! Kids love animation and music- it's the true secret to Disney films, you know! And your kids will LOVE this dvd. You will love that the songs they are singing along to are ACTUAL bible verses (!!), and that they are watching a story true to the biblical story! This is a wonderful DVD and one that every family should own. We also recommend it for churches for Sunday School classes and special family night showings!

A great stocking stuffer and family Christmas classic, available at Amazon
