'Lion of Judah' Animated Movie Premieres in June

A 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 Graham.

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.
