The Lion of Judah (2011)

Just noticed this animated film (a Christian parable) that captured my attention which would be great for family viewing.

Description: "Follow the adventures of a bold lamb (Judah) and his stable friends as they try to avoid the sacrificial altar the week preceding the crucifixion of, The King. It is a heart-warming account of the Easter story as seen through the eyes of a lovable pig (Horace), a faint-hearted horse (Monty), a pedantic rat (Slink), a rambling rooster (Drake), a motherly cow (Esmay) and a downtrodden donkey (Jack).

This magnificent period piece with its epic sets is a roller coaster ride of emotions. Enveloped in humor, this quest follows Judah & The Stables from the Bethlehem stable, passed the great temple, onto the hillside of Calvary, and to the empty tomb, as these unlikely heroes try to save their friend. The journey weaves seamlessly through the real biblical accounts of Palm Sunday, Jesus turning the tables in the temple, Peter's denial and with a tense, heart-wrenching climax, depicts the crucifixion and resurrection with gentleness and breathtaking beauty.

For Judah, the lamb with the heart of a lion, it is a story of courage and faith. For Jack, the disappointed donkey, it becomes a pivotal voyage of hope. For Horace, the...well, the dirty pig, and Drake the ignorant rooster, it is an opportunity to do something inappropriate and get into trouble.
