GREAT message for kids and adults alike, March 27, 2007
By Albert Yoo
I have read the children’s version of this classic story with my Sunday School kids (5th graders) and I was excited to see the DVD animated version. To my disappointment, I thought that the movie was a bit dry and the animation was subpar (but then again, this is not Disney or Pixar).
I was a bit reluctant to share this movie with my new Sunday School class(3rd graders) because I thought that the children would be bored out of their minds. However, I truly believe that the message in this classic story adopted from Bunyan’s original work is timeless, and can serve as a valuable teaching tool for both adults and children.
I prefaced the screening of the movie with a warning that it may become boring at times, but I encouraged the children to pay close attention to the story. To my surprise, they LOVED it! They really got into the story, asking questions about the characters and places. They were really disappointed when I had to stop the film because our class time had run out. I am definitely looking forward to completing the movie with them and discussing a Christian’s pilgrimage through life.
This is a definite must for any Sunday School teacher and Christian family. As long as my kids enjoyed it, I couldn’t be more pleased. A++++++++++

I bought this DVD primarily for my children (ages 6 and 4) they love it and have watched it many times already. I too have enjoyed it and found it helpful, even with the basic graphics and slight drawbacks it is highly commendable and I would recommend it wholehearedly.
Bunyans classic goes on and on!
Excellent Meaningful movie!!, January 20, 2006
By Ruby Nickelson
This movie is now one of my favorites! So informative and meaningful and despite it being animation it touched me with it’s message! A great revival for a Christian and a great help for a non-believer.
