The Prince Of Egypt (1998)

Although Charlton Heston's live-action Moses appears a little lower down on our list, this 1998 animated version of the story may be a better option for the younger audience. It is a retelling of the Book of Exodus, replete with a superb voice cast that includes Val Kilmer, Ralph Fiennes, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Sandra Bullock, as well as the obligatory catchy songs, in this animated film.

After the release of this film, Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey released the smash single When You Believe, which went on to win Best Original Song at the 1999 Academy Awards for Best Original Song.

Easter Movies About Jesus List

The Last Temptation Of Christ (1988)

You should see Martin Scorsese's crazy 1988 film featuring Willem Dafoe as God's son, a humble guy who takes the tough choice to accept his mission in life if you truly want to think about Jesus Christ's existential essence and his sacrifices.

A vivid, hallucinogenic, and unfiltered portrayal of that time period as imagined by Scorsese, the film is a must-see.

Rise Of The Guardians (2012)

These seasonal characters have never looked better than they do in this 3-D computer-animated adventure. The Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, the Sandman, and Jack Frost are all brought to life in ways you've never seen before.

The fantasy figures get together to create the Guardians, who are reimagined as superhero-like guardians, in order to prevent the evil spirit Pitch from taking over the planet. A number of real-life acting luminaries contribute their voices to the film, including Chris Pine, Alec Baldwin, Hugh Jackman, Isla Fisher, and Jude Law, who all lend their voices to the film.

The Passion Of The Christ (2004)

Mel Gibson directed this immensely famous tale about the anguish of Jesus' last twelve hours, which has become a classic. During its first theatrical run in 2004, Gibson's picture brought spectators to tears. It went on to become a surprise hit, earning the highest box office gross ever for an R-rated picture, a distinction it maintained until the end of last year (when Deadpool took the lead).

Like Jesus, James Caviezel delivered an outstanding performance. The picture's unflinching portrayal of violence distinguishes it from other works in the genre. With this film, Gibson hoped to bring viewers closer to the reality of Jesus' suffering while also re-establishing and bolstering the Christian faith. Consider viewing these beautiful Easter photographs after watching one of these Easter movies to get a better understanding of how the event was celebrated in earlier times.

Easter Parade (1948)

Easter Parade is a famous MGM musical from the Golden Age of Hollywood, starring Judy Garland and Fred Astaire, and it is the ideal nostalgic escapist for the holiday weekend.

The story revolves around the holiday when a Broadway star and a chorus girl fall in love, and it ends in a proposal that takes place during the Easter Parade, of course.

The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe (2005)

Disney's 2005 blockbuster adaptation of the famous C.S. Lewis' novel produced a wonderful Lord of the Rings-esque fantasy epic that was appropriate for younger children while still including spectacular combat sequences that were fit for adults as well.

For the more mature spectator, the Christian connections are obvious, making Easter the ideal occasion to reconnect with the Pevensie children, Mr. Tumnus, and the rest of the cast and crew. Despite the fact that the series failed in the following years, this initial picture remains a high point in the history of children's fantasy.

Risen (2016)

Following the crucifixion of Jesus, a Roman Centurion named Clavius goes on a quest to find his corpse, which goes missing mysteriously. Joseph Fiennes stars as Clavius, a gritty Game of Thrones-style period drama, with Joseph Fiennes as Jesus' body.

Clint Eastwood and Cliff Curtis co-star as the funky Christ, in whom Clavius finds redemption. It's the Easter tale told through the lens of Gladiator, complete with amazing production value, gore aplenty, and some of the best performers in the country.

The Ten Commandments (1956)

A classic Charlton Heston performance leads this epic tale of Moses and his battle with the Pharaoh of Egypt, who has been alienated from his brother. Yul Brenner takes on the role of King Ramses, his brother, with the same confidence. Director Cecil B. DeMille created the sweeping widescreen grandeur of old Hollywood in this Best Picture winner, which won the Academy Award for Best Picture. When God appeared as a talking Burning Bush on stage, Heston supplied the voice for God.

The Ten Commandments was a box-office smash when it was released, and people continue to go to theaters to see it every Easter. It is a tale of faith that is made all the more compelling by the spectacular visual effects. The dividing of the Red Sea is breathtaking every time you see it, and it was much more spectacular in the days before computer-generated imagery (CGI)! Discover why Easter is celebrated on a different Sunday every year.
