A new animated movie based on Bilal, the famous black companion of Prophet Muhammad, is set for release in September 2016. The movie which has already won awards for ‘most inspiring’ at the Cannes Film Festival, is also set to feature the longest battle scene in animation history.
1,400 year ago, Bilal a seven-year-old boy finds himself with his sister under the tyranny of slavery; he bears many burdens of life in his childhood from which he discovers inner strength he did not know he possessed before. Bilal knew from the bottom of his heart that he must be brave enough to raise his voice and choose his own path, and that everything is possible with determination. His courage was able to undo his handcuffs and set him free. His strong beautiful voice was a real gift from the Creator, but the voice of faith has made his childhood dream come true.
The movie will be released on September 8th across the Middle East, with further releases worldwide soon to come. Find out more about the movie here.
