Ben Hur (2003 film)
Ben Hur is a 2003 animated film based on the novel Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ, by Lew Wallace. It is the fourth film adaptation of the novel.
Charlton Heston's production company, Agamemnon Films (in association with GoodTimes Entertainment), produced this made-for-video animated version of the story, with Heston himself giving voice to the title character. Heston had won an Academy Award for playing the same role in the 1959 version. It was Heston's last film.
Despite running only 80 minutes (barely more than a third of the 1959 version's running time), it introduced the story to a new generation.
This version of Ben-Hur airs on TBN and Smile of a Child during the holidays.
