The biblical drama will arrive on Blu-ray in June.
In an early announcement to retailers, Universal is preparing 'The Young Messiah' for Blu-ray on June 14.
Inspired by Scripture and rooted in history, this story imagines a year in the boyhood of Jesus. Remaining true to the character of Jesus revealed in the Bible, 'The Young Messiah' is an inspirational story about the childhood of the Savior for the whole family. When the mystery of Jesus' divinity begins to unfold in His early years, He turns to His parents for answers. But Mary and Joseph, in an effort to protect their child, are afraid to reveal all they know. How do you explain the ways of the world to its Creator? How do you teach the Teacher? How do you help the Savior who came to save you? Follow the young Messiah as He and His family take the extraordinary journey from Egypt to Nazareth and on to Jerusalem – where His true identity and profound destiny are revealed.
Specs have not been detailed yet, but supplements will include: Deleted Scenes; The Making of The Young Messiah; and Feature Commentary with Director/Co-Writer Cyrus Nowrasteh and Co-Writer Betsy Giffen Nowrasteh.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray/DVD/Digital HD combo pack is $34.98.
