First Lady Janet Museveni officially revealed the “Animated Story of Jesus,” an innovative project aiming to resonate across generations with the timeless narrative of Jesus Christ. The launch in Uganda marks one of only three global events celebrating the film’s premiere, emphasizing the nation’s pivotal role in this ground-breaking initiative.
Highlighting the film’s significance, the event paid homage to the original Jesus Film, acknowledged as the most translated movie worldwide, with 35 languages from Uganda contributing to its diverse reach. The Animated Story of Jesus emerges as a modern, digital approach to retell the powerful teachings of Jesus, emphasizing family values, evangelism, and a vision for future generations.
Mrs. Museveni underscored the film’s potential as a compelling instrument for disseminating Jesus’s teachings within homes and communities, even extending its impact to the farthest corners of Uganda, including remote regions often overlooked.
Amidst the celebration, the First Lady applauded the crucial partnership with LIFE Ministry in Uganda, recognizing their collaborative efforts with the government. Their work focuses on effecting positive change within families and forthcoming generations. She commended their commitment to engaging youth, leaders, and communities in line with Uganda’s Kingdom Agenda, aimed at fortifying the spiritual foundation of the nation.
The anticipation for the film’s official release in December 2025 permeated the event, with Mrs. Museveni expressing gratitude to all individuals involved in this remarkable journey. Expectations are high for the film’s far-reaching impact, poised to transform lives globally by spreading the message of compassion, faith, and hope found in the story of Jesus Christ.
