Based on the powerful Old Testament story, the 90-minute animated feature film from the makers of Torchlighters and Jesus: He Lived Among Us recounts the story of Joseph, the favored son sold into slavery by his jealous brothers only to become second in command of Egypt.
Joseph is a young dreamer, spoiled by his father and so resented by his brothers that they secretly sell him to a slave trader. Eventually landing in the dungeons of Egypt, the young man who lacked nothing suddenly finds himself alone, forgotten, and overwhelmed with despair. Yet it is in this deep prison that Joseph begins to change, and in his humility he cries out to God.
As the years pass, his growing faith and gift for interpreting dreams bring him to the attention of the Pharoah, who exalts the young man to a prominent position. Having learned humble obedience to God, Joseph becomes instrumental not only in saving Egypt but the brothers who initially betrayed him. Joseph is a moving story that powerfully demonstrates God’s hand in all things, big and small.
For ages 5 and up.
Joseph: Beloved Son, Rejected Slave, Exalted Ruler – Official Trailer
I remember reading and hearing the Bible Story of Joseph when I was growing up. When the opportunity to review the Biblical Animated Series was available, I was thrilled to participate. The movie follows the same story from the Bible but in an awesome storyline and easy to follow animation. The animation was awesome, colorful and clearly depicted the characters and story in its truest form. I was captivated by the story and so were my children. I think the house was quiet (at least while the movie was playing) for the duration of the movie.
We all know and remember the Old Testament story of Joseph and how God used him in a mighty way, but you will have to watch the movie to find out! We enjoyed watching the film, I was trying to multi-task while watching and that was so hard to do. The voices of each character and the costumes were all reflections of the people and culture of that era. I am truly impressed with the rich quality of the animation, the characters, wardrobe and the setting of each animated film. You almost forget that it is animation instead of a real film. This is a film the whole family will enjoy. Grab your bucket of popcorn, a drink and enjoy!
