Heartwarming & Endearing, 3-D Animated Family Tale Features Stellar Cast, Including Ernest Borgnine, Michael Madsen & Scott Eastwood

Online PR News – 29-May-2011 – – WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — A laugh-filled, heart-warming, animated tale, The Lion of Judah is a classic in the making that the entire family will enjoy.

Premiering in June (beginning on the 3rd) in cities across the country, The Lion of Judah is seen through the eyes of a zany cast of stable animals and features the voice talents of Academy Award-winner Ernest Borgnine (Red, The Wild Bunch, The Dirty Dozen, Marty, From Here to Eternity, TV’s McHale’s Navy), Scott Eastwood (Invictus, Gran Torino, Pride, Flags of Our Fathers), Michael Madsen (Donnie Brasco, Kill Bill, Vol. 1 & 2, Reservoir Dogs), Georgina Cordova (The Tale of Despereaux) and more.

It’s a roaring adventure with Judah (Cordova), the spunky and heroic lamb; Slink (Borgnine), a rat with a plan and the natural leader of the group; Jack (Eastwood), a downtrodden, teenaged donkey with an attitude; Boss (Madsen), a street-smart Raven who strives to be better; Esmay (Sandi Patty), a motherly cow; Horace (Omar Benson Miller), an unmannerly but big-hearted pig; Monty (Anupam Kher), a faint-hearted horse; and Drake (Alphonso McAuley), a zany, rambling rooster.

Upon learning that Judah is in the clutches of the townspeople – who plan to make him the highlight of the annual festival feast – the stablemates leave their cozy barn, embarking on an action-packed series of laugh-out-loud exploits to free their friend. During their daring journey, they interact and entwine with history … finally seeking help from the King, born in their stable more than 30 years earlier.

A remarkable 3-D animated epic – depicting a variety of historical scenes as it entertains with humorous antics – The Lion of Judah re-imagines the Easter story in a uniquely entertaining and contemporary manner.

Without a doubt, The Lion of Judah will leave you in awe of the power that one lamb can command.

Recognized by The Dove Foundation with the Dove Seal for Family Friendly Entertainment, The Lion of Judah won the award for Best Animated Film at the 2011 Sabaoth International Film Festival in Milan, Italy.

The Lion of Judah’s original motion picture soundtrack (available on iTunes) features 11 songs and includes 10 underscores composed by award-winning composer/producer Greg Sims.

The Lion of Judah is rated PG and the running time is approximately 87 minutes.
