"The Promise: Birth of The Messiah" Children's DVD Review and Giveaway {CLOSED}

I have such an awesome review and giveaway for you today! I've been on the lookout for Christmas traditions that incorporate the birth of Christ so that each year we can celebrate the true meaning of Christmas and this DVD is truly what I have been looking for! "The Promise: Birth Of The Messiah" is a beautiful animated musical from Glorious Films. This is a movie you have to see for yourself to understand just how beautiful it is.

The Promise: The Birth of the Messiah is an animated musical celebration of one of the most pivotal events in all human history, the birth of Jesus Christ. This beautifully crafted musical is a faithful adaptation of the birth narrative from the Gospel of Luke in both story and song. The animated production leverages optical motion technology to blend traditional animation techniques with the performance talents of ballet dancers and dramatic stage actors. The result is a unique and worshipful story experience that will inspire audiences young and old for years to come.

Glorious Films is the home of high quality entertainment products created from a strong biblical worldview. The creative and technical teams are world-class and have come to from all over the globe. Their first film, The Promise, is an animated musical about the nativity story that will be released in 2013. The second film, The Prodigal, an animated musical based on the parable of the prodigal son, is in production for a Spring 2014 release.

Baby Z absolutely loves musicals (and music in general) so I knew she would love this movie but I was worried she wouldn't sit through the whole thing (its 45 minutes long) but she sat there through it with me and she was completely mesmerized by it the whole time. I cannot wait til she's a little older so that she can understand what is going on a little more but I personally feel that you're never too young to hear the story of the birth of Christ.

My personal favorite part of the movie was just how much of the dialog and lyrics came straight out of scripture. I also loved the 3D animation especially the scenery. Add in the beautiful music and incredibly accurate storytelling, and I'm just completely blown away by how amazing this movie truly is. My only disappointment with the movie was that there was no closed captioning. Although I knew it was a long shot because it is a small production company, I use closed captioning every day and I hope one day, every DVD comes with it!

Check out the official trailer for "The Promise"!

Overall, I absolutely love this movie! The animation is stunning, the songs are beautiful (both lyrics and melody), and the story stays true to the Bible. This will be a Christmas tradition in my family for many years to come. It would make a wonderful Christmas present or stocking stuffer for any Christian family!
