Blog October 24th The Pilgrims Progress – Animated Film

Oh Lord By Praise featuring Lucy Stimpson- Maynard from the album Love is the Way recorded and produced by John Hodgkinson

This week I am giving the soon to be released animated film of “The Pilgrims Progress” a plug because a) it is a wonderful story that has been re-created with great passion and skill and b) because the film’s distributors AO Vision are also distributing Risen! The Musical DVDs (so it is a form of thanks)
To summarise this is a story of an epic journey, faithfully adapted to modern-day. Christian faces distractions, challenges, and perils at every turn of the way, but ends victorious, with helpful guides, as he stays on the narrow path to the distant Celestial City.
The promotion states: In this inspiring feature-length allegory, travel with a pilgrim as he embarks on an epic journey. John Bunyan’s classic 1678 novel is faithfully adapted to modern-day using CGI animation. The story begins with a man named Christian. Overwhelmed with the struggles of life in his home City of Destruction, he carries his burden on his back as he sets off to reach the peace and security of the distant Celestial City. Christian’s journey is difficult. He faces distractions, challenges, and perils at every turn of the way, but finds victory, with helpful guides, as he stays on the narrow path.
One commentator says:
“Who would have dreamed that “The Pilgrim’s Progress” could have been more vividly portrayed than it is in reading the written page- perhaps this rendition has done just that. Through captivating graphics, Hollywood quality voice overs and beautiful orchestration we may just be witnessing”The Pilgrim’s Progress” for the next generation.” Featuring voices of: John Rhys-Davies (The Lord of the Rings, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade) Kristyn Getty (In Christ Alone,) Ben Price (Australia’s Got Talent)
