The classic Christian allegory is now out as a feature-length animated movie.
The Pilgrim's Progress, a centuries old story from English writer and preacher John Bunyan, is said to be second in sales only to the Bible in terms of Christian books. Now it is out in movie theaters in an animated re-telling of the tale.
From writer/director Robert Fernandez, a real veteran in faith-based animation, the film runs 108 minutes and takes viewers along with the protagonist, Christian, on his familiar journey from the City of Destruction to the Celestial City. The allegory is a mirror for the journey through life by believers, all of whom feel the pull of the world and the evil one, as does Christian in this tale.
The movie is a limited engagement, playing for just two days and in 750 theaters nationwide. The first night was Thursday and it performed quite well, bringing in $617,000 and taking 10th place overall, according to Box Office Mojo.
The 2nd and final showings will be this Saturday, April 20th. You can get details on when and where via this link to Fathom Events.
