The Garden

Recommended Posts

Nine months ago I got to visit the set of Breakthrough, an upcoming "faith-based" film produced by DeVon Franklin (Miracles from Heaven). Since he produced the animated Christmas movie The Star, I asked if he had any other Bible movies in the works, and he mentioned something called The Garden, which would tell the Garden of Eden story using Jungle Book-style live-action and photorealistic CGI.

Today the project was officially announced.

As with a lot of Franklin's productions, the pitch for this one has a very uplifting, positive spin ("The Garden will follow how the first animals and people discover the meaning of friendship, community, and unity in a world that is completely new") -- but I can't help but wonder how it squares with the fact that the biblical story of Eden ends in tragedy, as one of the animals tempts the first humans to disobey God, and the "unity" of Creation is shattered forever.
