Years ago when I taught children’s church I fell in love with The Land of Far-Beyond, a children’s version of Pilgrim’s Progress written by Enid Blyton. I read a chapter or two of the book each week and the children all enjoyed it as much as I did. Later, I decided to read the original Pilgrim’s Progress, but I just didn’t enjoy it as much as The Land of Far-Beyond.
I hoped that the new animated movie release of The Pilgrim’s Progress would capture the story as well as Enid Blyton’s storybook version. I got to see an early screener, and guess what. It was the perfect visual representation of the beloved story.
The Pilgrim’s Progress releases to theaters Easter weekend for just 2 days – April 18 and 20.
Thursday, April 18, 7:00p
Saturday, April 20, 12:55p
You can get tickets and learn more about the movie at The Pilgrim’s Progress website.
I’ll be posting my full review closer to release date, but in the meantime, I get to giveaway THREE copies of the interactive, digital adaptation of The Pilgrim’s Progress! I’ll also be giving away illustrated storybooks and movie tickets. How cool is that?

For me, I liked morality and legalism. This movie does a particularly great job with that scene.
