Producers Of 1979 Jesus Movie Set To Release Animated Film

After 45 years, the producers of the famous 1979 Jesus movie have revealed plans for a new animated film titled “JESUS”, set to be released in 2025.

In a statement, they revealed that the new movie is coming 45 years after the original ‘Jesus’ film, which holds a Guinness World Record as the most translated film ever.

“JESUS” (2025) is a new, animated family film about the life of Jesus designed to reach families, new generations, and people of all ages with the story of Jesus Christ.

The film, which also adopts advanced visuals and computer graphics, will be released on 25 December 2025

Speaking about the movie, slated for release in theatres for Christmas 2025, the executive director, Josh Newell, said that the film promises to bring Jesus’s story to life based on the book of Luke in a new and transformative way.

He said, “Jesus Film Project commissioned the animation in a Premise Entertainment studio. Our vision was to produce this movie based on the original ‘JESUS’ film.”

The film is in the unfinished stages of production and is being crafted by a team affiliated with the Jesus Film Project. This CRU ministry has shared the original “JESUS” film with people across the globe.

The original film has been translated into 2,100 languages, including Nigerian native dialects.

Describing what sets the new animation apart from the original, Newell said the new film would be more than just a movie.

Newell said an animated film about Jesus has yet to be created in the way the new movie will be captured. He said the film will be translated into over 2,000 dialects to spread the Gospel globally.
