Charlton Heston is forever etched into our memories as Judah Ben Hur in the classic 1959 film “Ben-Hur.” Now this February, his production company Agamemnon Films, in partnership with GoodTimes, will release a completely new full length animated feature film version entitled “Ben Hur” where Heston reprises his role as the voice of Judah.
“This wonderful story has been told many times in the last hundred years, once as a highly successful stage play and three times as a feature,” said Heston. “‘Ben Hur’ is a classic tale of love, forgiveness and redemption, known throughout the world. I’m delighted to be able to bring it to family audiences in this marvelous new format.”
The DVD/VHS feature will hit stores Feb. 25th, 2003.
