ABOUT THE PROMISE
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.
I really didn't know what to expect with this I had never seen an animated musical of this type before. I really enjoy musicals, so I jumped at the chance to watch something different. It was very unique presentation. The music and animation flowed very well much to my surprise. Very beautifully done. It was like watching animated characters performing a stage. Musical Puppet theater pretty much. I loved all the songs presented in this musical. They weren't your normal Christmas songs. The animated babies (John and Jesus) were a bit funny in shape, but they did get the point across. It isn't a long movie under 45 minutes. I would highly recommend watching The Promise this Christmas! I was provided a copy to giveaway to one of my blog readers. Read to the end of this post to find out how you may enter the giveaway.
