Noahs Ark

Noahs Ark
Dove "Family-Approved"
For All Ages

Synopsis

Based on the Bible story by the same name, Noah’s Ark journeys to biblical times as it tells the familiar tale of Noah, his family and the animals who traveled in the ark to survive an epic flood meant to destroy the rest of civilization. This animated movie takes a lighter approach to this traditional material, as the story is mainly told from animals’ perspective, and both animals and humans can speak.

Dove Review

What a cute DVD! In a funny scene Big Foot, a Unicorn, and a Dragon don’t make it into the ark because they don’t believe in the impending flood! This animated feature is obviously not to be taken too seriously, especially when it comes to biblical accuracy. Although it is based on Noah and the ark, it clearly centers on the animal characters and contains a lot of cartoon and fantasy violence, such as animals dropping things on other animals’ heads, a man falling into a hole, etc. God is seen in a human form and although the film is not strictly biblical, it does include God, angels, and Noah himself.

We are pleased to award this film our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages, while noting that families concerned about cartoon violence or biblical accuracy will want to carefully consult our content listing. If your kids enjoy watching a lot of animals and action, this is the movie for them!
